Wenger offers opinion on why Sanchez is not playing at Man Utd



Arsene Wenger claims Alexis Sanchez can have no complaints being benched by Manchester United .

The former Arsenal star has struggled to cement his place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting XI due to a combination of injury problems and poor form.

Sanchez was handed a chance to stake a claim when he was introduced as a substitute in United’s Champions League clash against PSG.

However, the Chilean failed to grab the opportunity in the 2-0 reverse and Wenger believes Anthony Martial is deserving of his spot in the side instead.

Wenger told beIN Sport : “He has lost his place and plays in the same position as Martial.

“Today who would dispute that Martial is indispensable for Man United? He plays and that’s competition and that’s fair competition in my opinion.”

Sanchez entered the fray at the beginning of the second half but was once again unable to impose himself as his struggles in a United shirt continued.

Solskjaer was in no mood to pull his punches with the Chilean, saying: “I can’t do anything about Alexis Sanchez. When he plays he needs to find himself because we know there’s a quality player there.”
