Gary Lineker tweets his say on Alexis Sanchez injury for Arsenal and Gabriel blunder

Gary Lineker

The MOTD presenter was not impressed when Alexis got injured.

Arsenal slipped up in the Premier League for the second week in a row today as they drew 1-1 with Norwich City at Carrow Road.

The Canaries deserved to come away from the game with at least a point after an excellent display against a rather below par Arsenal side.

Mesut Ozil gave them the lead but some horrible defending gifted Norwich their equaliser.

Defender Gabriel came into the game after an injury forced off Laurent Koscielny. He got bullied off the ball by Lewis Grabban who then slotted the ball into the back of the net.

It was a poor piece of play that saw a quick-witted tweet from BBC Match of the Day presenter and former Tottenham Hotspur and England striker Gary Lineker:

But he was not joking when it came to Alexis Sanchez.

The Chilean carried a hamstring injury into the game but Arsene Wenger decided to risk playing him despite a huge game in the Champions League next week v Olympiakos in Greece.

Risking their best player in such circumstances seemed criminal to Lineker and plenty of Arsenal fans.

Arsenal fans will now be sweating on their talisman's fitness ahead of the game in ten days time.
