Thierry Henry has claimed that Arsene Wenger is no longer as loyal to contract rebels Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil following the start of the season.
“Listen, there’s something I’ve seen that I didn’t see for a very long time with the Arsenal side and Arsene doing what he did,” Henry said on Sky Sports.
“More often than not, when Alexis Sanchez was back, whether he’s fit or not, he plays.
“Ozil, whether he’s fit or not or if he trained a lot or not, he plays.
“The other day I saw something at Chelsea, okay he (Sanchez) didn’t start at Chelsea, but when he came on they put him up front because they were so well organised.
Maybe we’re reading a bit too much into that but this is something that Arsene wouldn’t have done back in the days. ’You’re back, you’re the man, you play’.
“The other day was like ‘hang on a minute, that team has been working hard, we’re going to go to Chelsea like that’.
“Now Ozil comes on and Alexis comes off.
“There’s something I didn’t see before that now he said at the beginning of the game ‘the team is playing well, so he’s like any other player, he has to wait a bit’.”
