Is Alexis Sanchez committed to Arsenal?

Alexis endured a frustrating night at the office on Sunday, after the 3-1 defeat to Manchester city away from home. He played as a No. 9, a position at which he has recently proven to be ineffective. Sanchez lost possession of the ball eleven times and was trapped offside quite often during the match.

This was one of his worst performances in recent times. We are used to seeing him taking out his frustrations on fellow teammates on the pitch. There was one such incident with fellow teammate Aaron Ramsey in the match against Manchester City.

He has been linked to a move to Manchester City since summer. This has raised questions about Alexis’s commitment to Arsenal. Ramsey, who gave some glimmer of hope for Arsenal fans during the match, by providing an assist to Alexander Lacazette has said that it does not distract the squad. He has defended Sanchez and Ozil, saying that they still have the hunger to win for arsenal. Arsenal suffered a huge defeat to Liverpool early in the season and were heavily criticized for their display. Ramsey believes they are on the right track now after a spirited performance in a 0-0 stalemate against the champions Chelsea, a few weeks back. Arsenal currently sit at 6th position in the table behind Liverpool. They have certainly improved their performances since their start to the season, but they still have tons of work to do before they can secure a top four spot. They currently sit at 6th position in the table behind Liverpool.

Ramsey told Sky Sports: “That's part of football.”

“At the end of the day, they're committed, they're putting in a shift for the team and they're still hungry to do well for this team and for themselves. As long as they are fully committed to every game, there is nothing to be worried about. The Liverpool game [a 4-0 defeat] was a difficult one for us.”

“It was a weird time for us. As a team, we are not quite at it 100 per cent.”

“We have learned from that. We went to Chelsea and put in a great performance, and we were perhaps unlucky not to nick the game.”
