First of all, we could all probably use a hug right now, so **hugs.**

If you feel like thinking about sports today, know that Arsenal star Alexis Sánchez is in doubt for the upcoming match against Manchester United, according to The Guardian. Alexis just picked up an injury while on international duty for Chile.

Unfortunately, Arsenal’s medical staff cannot make an exact diagnosis yet, but apparently Chile’s football association is calling the injury a “low-grade muscle tear.”

While it remains unclear just how long Alexis will be sidelined for, any period of absence hurts the team. Alexis has been terrific this season, and his move to the center forward role had Arsenal playing some fantastic soccer. And missing one of the biggest matches of the season against a rival club and overgrown man-child of a manager Joes Mourinho is certainly not ideal.

Now, because I need it and you probably need it, here is a link to a picture of Alexis with two adorable dogs.
