Arsenal Fans Tore Into this Star Player After West Ham Draw
Arsenal were looking to get back to winning ways when they travelled to the Olympic Stadium to face West Ham United in the Premier League on Wednesday night.
But Arsene Wenger’s Gunners could only manage to come away from the clash with a single point against a struggling Hammers outfit, after a 0-0 stalemate in London.
This was the latest disappointing setback for the club’s fans following a recent draw with Southampton too, and that 3-1 defeat at the hands of rivals Manchester United.
But fans vented their frustration mainly at one Gunners star after the underwhelming goalless draw with West Ham.
It was Chile international forward Alexis Sanchez that faced the brunt of the Arsenal supporters’ backlash this week.
The misfiring attacker was dispossessed 32 time during a woeful display against the Saints last weekend, and it didn’t get any better for him during 83 minutes against the Irons.
Wenger’s men were unable to breach the defence of David Moyes’ West Ham and fans seemed to take their frustrations out on Sanchez, who has stuttered of late.
Here are some of the reactions from the Gooners:
Alexis Sanchez gives the ball away 60 times in two games. Fans call for Arsene Wenger to drop him. What does Arsene Wenger do? Drops Lacazette to the bench— Danny Welbeck (@WelBeast) December 13, 2017
Shocking to think we turned down £60m for Sanchez.— MT (@Arsenallthings) December 13, 2017
It's got to a point now where Walcott should probably be playing ahead of him.
Past few games Sanchez has been terrible. Bench him its not like he wants to be at the club— Ma'Leeyon' (@LeeMangz) December 13, 2017
It's gotten to a stage that I don't give a damn where or when Alexis Sanchez goes. Sour end to a magnificent spell.— Pádraig (@afcpadraig) December 13, 2017
The only reason #Wenger perseveres with Alexis Sanchez is coz he now relies on individual brilliance of players to win games. He is now incapable of masterminding something special to get the best from the collective #Arsenal— God Bless Arsenal (@Arsenalman2011) December 13, 2017
Alexis Sanchez really got pocketed by a 57 year-old Zabaleta— ?Aaron (@ReidTheGame) December 13, 2017
Jack Wilshere reportedly told Alexis Sanchez to fuck off in training.— GoonersRelated (@GoonersRelated) December 12, 2017
A lot of players seem to have had enough of Alexis. Don't blame them

Arsenal fans had previously been desperate to retain Sanchez in the transfer window but they may have had a change of heart in recent weeks after his awful showings for the club.
