Chelsea 3-0 Arsenal : Neville Slams Sanchez – Even Iwobi Did More Than Him


Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has slammed the performance of Arsenal’s talisman Alexis Sanchez in their 1-3 loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.


Arsenal saw their title hope go up in flames at Stamford Bridge with Mikel Alonso, Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas scoring for the Blues before Olivier Giroud scored a consolation goal for the Gunners.

Neville while analysing the game on skysports was critical of Arsenal’s sloppiness, but particularly hit out at the poor performance of Alexis Sanchez.

” You have to look at him as one of the players the others depend on in games like this. He was very poor and gave away the ball countless times. Even Alex Iwobi did more than him”, Neville said.

He went further to criticise Arsenal’s midfield trio consisting of Iwobi, Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain following the second half substitution of Francis Coquelin.

” Let me just throw this midfield at you, Oxlade Chamberlain, Iwobi and Ozil against Chelsea. I mean?, Who else does that? Only Arsenal and they paid for it”.
