Alexis Sanchez has posted a cryptic message on social media after Arsenal were hammered 4-0 by Liverpool at Anfield.
The Chilean is desperate to leave the club for Manchester City and Sunday’s battering will have done little to encourage him to stay at the Emirates.
It was Sanchez’s first performance of the season but he didn’t last the full 90 minutes, with Arsene Wenger taking him off for Alexandre Lacazette mid-way through the second half.
After the match, he tweeted “Just published a photo” and linked out to his Instagram account.
The photo on his Instagram showed him on his haunches, looking dejected.
Sanchez struggled to get into the game, and when he was substituted he cut a disconsolate figure on the bench.
But some fans believed that they saw more than a hint of a smile cross the Chilean’s lips shortly after Sturridge had scored to make it 4-0.
Goals from Robert Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Daniel Sturridge made it an afternoon to forget at Anfield for the Frenchman, who then had to fulfil his media obligations.
But Wenger would only last two minutes and 34 seconds before Arsenal press officer Mark Gonnella ushered the Gunners boss away.
In that time Wenger did manage to let his feelings on the Anfield thrashing known.
“From the first to the last minute we weren’t technically or physically at the level to compete,” he admitted.
“Overall, the performance was not at the requested level.”
