Alexis Sanchez was involved in a locker room fight with his Arsenal teammates following a 1-0 win over Burnley on Nov. 26, the consequences of which were seen in the Gunners’ 3-2 win over Crystal Palace on Thursday, reports David Hynter of The Guardian.

A 92nd-minute Sanchez penalty gave Arsenal a narrow victory at Turf Moor but his teammates took umbrage with his on-field antics through the match, reports Hynter, who explains that while the bust-up was not physical in nature, it did have some Arsenal players verbally dressing down the Chile international.

Hynter reports that Sanchez was told by his teammates that they were tired of his pontificating and gesticulating when things did not go Arsenal’s way, as demonstrated by the way he waves his arms in frustration during a match. Sanchez reportedly retorted that his intent was only to motivate his teammates but his point was shut down when he was told the best way to achieve that end is to encourage. Hynter reports that Sanchez took issue with that statement.

As a result, the likes of Laurent KoscielnyHector BellerinSead KolasinacCalum Chambers and Jack Wilshere did not celebrate with Sanchez when he scored the first of his two goals against Crystal Palace on Thursday, an act that Hynter points out Sanchez did not miss, gesturing in surprise at the lack of enthusiasm around him. His second goal, which came four minutes later, saw all but Koscielny gather by the away enclosure – the French defender stood in place, unmoved.

Hynter adds that Sanchez’s teammates have “grown weary” of his presence, with the 29-year-old still in contract limbo. Sanchez’s current deal expires at the end of the season, and Hynter believes some at Arsenal “feel it would be better for all parties if he was sold” in January.

    out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thank you! https://www.promotiongifts.co.nz
