The Gunners manager Arsene Wenger admitted earlier in the week that midfielder Alexis Sanchez had a little hamstring issue.
Despite that, Wenger still opted to play him against Norwich City at Carrow Road in the Sunday afternoon fixture.. and unfortunately the Chilean superstar picked up a hamstring injury of his right leg in the 57th minute and failed to finish this match. The result leaves Gunners two points off the top, in fourth position.
Arsenal supporters react in furious fashion to blame Wenger.!!
Unsurprising. We played Alexis Sanchez until he broke.

What an utter stupid decision by Wenger to play Sanchez. Terrible management.

Ridiculous decision from Wenger playing Sanchez when he’s not fit, he’ll be out even longer now #idiotic

This was expected. It was only a matter of time before Sanchez got injured. Why would Wenger not rest him is a mistery.

Surely having to risk Sanchez is a massive reason to spend some f*cking money Arsene. You genius.
