Arsenal fans appear to have fully turned on Alexis Sanchez after the Chilean’s performance against Manchester United.
Many supporters were already upset with the way Alexis played against Manchester City and Liverpool, as well as his attitude during and after those games. His smiles on the bench at Anfield didn’t go down well, nor did the fact he was the first one off the pitch after Arsenal’s loss at the Etihad.
The 28-year-old won some support in the derby win over Spurs, but seems to have lost it all again with the way he played against United.
The general consensus after the match was that the Gunners needed to work to hold onto plenty of the current team, but not Sanchez:
Lacazette is far better than I expected. Get rid of Alexis and do everything to keep Özil and Ramsey and Wengerball is back.

Very easy to see this season that Özil cares and is giving everything and that Alexis isn't trying at all.

Sell Alexis. New contracts for Özil & Ramsey. Give Ramsey the armband. Buy a winger & a deep playmaker. Replace all our centre backs. New keeper. Get new fans. Replace the corner flags with slightly less bendy ones. Relay the training ground. New contract for Gunnersaurus. Easy.

One fan found a way to put the general fan sentiment nicely, considering what Alexis has given the club over the last few years:
Alexis Sanchez has given us some amazing moments and has been an honour to watch him play for my team.
But stats like losing possession 34 times today, intrigues me as to what would be possible with this team without him.

Others were not so forgiving of the player, who appears to be forcing his way out:
Alexis Sanchez is leaving this season.
And I won't lose a fucking wink of sleep. Iv never seen a player give a ball away so much so consistently.
We commit so many and he constantly fucks it up.

I put forward that at this point it seems to be best that Arsenal sell the forward on and rebuild, but one fan wasn’t even sure who would want him:
Who would buy him on this form

In the end there are sure to be some buyers, even if Manchester City do end up changing the keen position they held over the summer.
Right now, I can’t see too many Arsenal fans protesting his departure.
