Transfer News: Wenger Explains Why Alexis Sanchez Was Benched Against Chelsea


Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, has maintained that dropping Alexis Sanchez for their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against Chelsea, “had nothing to do with the transfer market”.

Sanchez was only a second-half substitute, as the Gunners held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Wenger’s resolution to drop the player comes in the midst of speculation that a move to Manchester City is close to being finalized.

“I don’t have to justify every decision I make, you know. I made over 1,000 games & over 1,000 teams & I got it every time wrong, but I have to make a decision,” Wenger said.


Asked if he remains confident that Sanchez will stay at the club until the summer, when his contract expires, Wenger said: “Yes, that’s what I want.

“I want him to stay for longer because he’s a very important players for us. When he came on tonight, you could see that he created straight away danger.
