Wenger urges jeered Sanchez to silence the boo-boys

Wenger urges jeered Sanchez to silence the boo-boys

Bellerin has played every minute of Arsenal's Premier League campaign so far this season and it looks unlikely to change, as the Gunners lack depth on the right-side of their defensive line.

And that attribute was out in full force after eagle-eyed fans spotted Welbeck seemingly missing an open goal from one yard out as he followed up team-mate Alexandre Lacazette's goal for the Gunners against Bournemouth.

Sanchez in particular was in high demand, Ligue 1 side PSG were linked with a possible swoop for the Chilean, and a deadline day move to Manchester City was seemingly close to getting over the line.

Welbeck was denied the opportunity for a hat-trick as Wenger opted to hand Alexis Sanchez his season debut following a protracted and unpleasant standoff between player and club over his future at the club.

Alexis Sanchez is completely committed to Arsenal and will quickly win over any doubting fans, manager Arsene Wenger said after his side cruised to a comfortable 3-0 Premier League victory against Bournemouth on Saturday.

Fitness concerns over Sanchez ensured Welbeck got the nod against Bournemouth and his performance is one which will give Arsene Wenger something to think about.

He gets stronger and stronger.

"We have to accept those responses from people", Wenger said when asked about the negative reaction from some quarters.

Sanchez was on the bench against Bournemouth after a late return from worldwide duty, and was booed by sections of the crowd when he came on as a substitute during the 3-0 win. "I don't know how bad it is but he's certainly out for next week's game". Maybe [he was unhappy] because he wanted to score. We were not good. "The interpretation of the attitudes is always very risky". Welbeck had numerous chances to complete his hat-trick, Ozil fired narrowly wide and substitute Francis Coquelin had a goal-bound effort blocked on his 100th Arsenal appearance.
