It appeared that the whole of Arsenal’s world were exasperated and disappointed with Arsenal’s result against the Cherries.
However, the most frustrated among the players of Arsenal appeared to be Alexis Sanchez, whose gesture suggested there is a problem with morale at Arsenal.
Arsenal were 3-0 down but staged a rare comeback within the last 20mins of the game even though the team looked below par for the most part of the game.
Yet it appeared more like an obituary to Arsenal’s title challenge. And much seemed to centre around the reaction of Alexis Sanchez at the final whistle when he threw his gloves down in gesture of frustration.
Sanchez was the outstanding player for Arsenal on the night. He showed – and kept showing – even when Wenger’s men were on the ropes.
Yes, he had an on-field row with Aaron Ramsey. Just like Diego Costa and Pedro did during Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat at Tottenham. That was just two arch-competitiors having a bust-up apparently.
And one rumour had it that Sanchez broke a window in the Bournemouth dressing room afterwards in a fit of pique. He did well there. There are no windows in the Bournemouth dressing room.
Then there was talk of a blazing row with the other players. He can play, can Sanchez. He must also have one hell of a voice on him as well because he went away to be tested and by the time he came back the dressing room was empty.
Maybe he is one of those who can start a row in an empty room.
He didn’t say a lot of the coach journey back to London. But neither did Wenger make much use of the half a dozen languages he speaks fluently.
