Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez issues social media response to bust-up rumours

Sanchez was named as a substitute by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger for Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Liverpool, with subsequent reports claiming that decision was a disciplinary matter rather than a tactical decision, as Wenger insisted after the match.

The Chilean worldwide was dropped to the bench for the Gunners' 3-1 defeat at the hands of Liverpool on Saturday, and reports on Sunday night had suggested that he was removed from the starting lineup as punishment for a blazing row involving his teammates earlier in the week.

In his only public response, Sanchez brought up a 1911 maxim by G.K. Chesterton in an Instagram posting. That was the unique reason for my decision.

Sanchez's current Arsenal contract expires at the end of next season and the speculation over whether he will sign a fresh deal has dominated what has been another underwhelming season for the Gunners.

Wenger said his relationship with Sanchez was "honest and normal, like with every single player" and played down the possibility that the Chile forward might leave during the close season. Arsenal play Bayern in the second leg of their round-of-16 tie at the Emirates on Tuesday.

The Chilean was left out of the starting line-up at Anfield but came on in the second half as Arsenal lost 3-1.

Their chorus of "he's just a one-season wonder" was a sarcastic reminder to all those who wrote off Kane before he embarked on a prolific run of three successive seasons with at least 20 goals.

There is no mention in any of the reports as to whether or not Sanchez could be joining a Premier League rival.

It was hailed as one of the best trades of the offseason, helping general manager Mike Maccagnan win NFL Executive of the Year. If last season was just a down season, the addition of a player like Marshall would make the Patriots' offense very scary.

Sanchez had displayed incredible form during his successful stint at Barcelona and he also proved his mettle after joining the Gunners.

Liverpool sealed victory in stoppage time through Georginio Wijnaldum's goal on the break to clinch only its second win in eight league matches in 2017.

"Either completely put him out or play him and keep him in the team".

It would appear that Alexis Sanchez' days at Arsenal are increasingly numbered, with reports from the club today portraying him in a far-from-flattering light.

That's according to Jonathan Johnson of ESPN, who has suggested that Patrick Kluivert, the French club's director of football, has plenty to ponder before making a move for the Chile global.

Although there were many times over the past decade when Wenger seemed on the verge of being out in North London, this moment seems more real than the rest. Mesut Ozil is a doubt for the weekend after being sent home from training with an illness, per Goal's Chris Wheatley.

Sanchez is now under the radar of top-flight clubs - including Juventus, Chelsea, PSG, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid. "Let's go Gunners. The only failure is not trying", he wrote.

The move sparked rumours Sanchez would take up an offer from one of Europe's giants in the summer window.
