Arsene Wenger insists Alexis Sanchez can have no arguments at being restricted to a place on Manchester United’s substitutes’ bench for Tuesday’s heavyweight Champions League clash against PSG at Old Trafford.
The Chile international swapped the Emirates for Old Trafford last January but has struggled to rediscover the form which saw him regarded as one of the Premier League’s most revered forwards during his time under Wenger’s tutelage.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has won 10 of his 11 matches since taking over from Jose Mourinho but, like his predecessor, has found little or no room for Sanchez in his best XI.
Anthony Martial has emerged as the Norwegian’s first choice on the left wing and cemented his place for their Champions League game with a goal and an assist during Saturday’s comfortable win over Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Commenting on Sanchez’s alarming fall from grace, Wenger told beIN Sport: ‘He has lost his place and plays in the same position as Martial.
‘Today who would dispute that Martial is indispensable for Man United? He plays and that’s competition and that’s fair competition in my opinion.
