Arsenal Fans Have An Absolute Meltdown As Alexis Sanchez Is Dropped For Liverpool Clash

Arsene Wenger has pulled something of a surprise in his team to face Liverpool on Saturday evening.

With Mesut Ozil already absent through illness, Wenger delivered a shock by dropping Alexis Sanchez, the side’s other star player, to the bench for the match at Anfield.

Olivier Giroud is instead preferred to lead the line to lead the line for the visitors, with Danny Welbeck starting on the wing in what is only the England international’s second start since last May.

Arsenal fans have reacted to the surprise change in personnel with stoic good grace and complete faith that the team selected by Wenger will be enough to secure Arsenal’s first league win at Anfield since 2012.

No they’re not, they’re obviously losing their minds…

Ozil-less and Sanchez-less Arsenal look to take advantage of Liverpool’s recent slump in form, and a win would take them level on points on second-placed Tottenham. Defeat, however, will see them drop out of the top four behind Jurgen Klopp’s side.
