Alexis Sanchez: Injured in Arsenal's 1-1 draw at Norwich City

Arsene Wenger is coming in for criticism from Arsenal supporters after starting Alexis Sanchez at Norwich City only for him to limp off with a hamstring injury.

Speaking at his press conference on Friday, Wenger said that Sanchez had “a little hamstring alarm” but may start at Carrow Road anyway.

“Spontaneously it might not be the best moment to rest Alexis, but I don’t know. He had a little hamstring alarm but we will see how he recovers from that.”

Sanchez set up Mesut Ozil for Arsenal’s opener in Sunday’s Premier League game at Norwich but then pulled up with a hamstring strain when chasing a pass on the hour mark. Lewis Grabban had equalised by this point, with the game finishing 1-1.

Wenger defended his decision to start Sanchez, saying the forward “felt alright before the game and declared that he had no problem”, but many Arsenal fans took to Twitter after the game to criticise the manager’s decision.
