Norwich City defender Ryan Bennett speaks out over Sanchez fall

Alexis Sanchez Chile

This really was rather dangerous but did he mean it?

Since moving from Barcelona last season, Alexis Sanchez has been having a lovely old time with Arsenal, already scoring 34 goals in all competitions for the Gunners

The Chilean has been seriously terrorising defenders in the Premier League, with his tireless running, dribbling and silky skills leaving defenders chasing shadows. 

And that's pretty much what he was doing when Arsene Wenger's side traveled up to East Anglia to face Alex Neil's Norwich City.

With Sanchez already causing loads of problems for the Canaries and getting involved in the opening goal scored by Mesut Ozil, the home side needed to stop him by any means necessary. 

But we reckon Norwich defender Ryan Bennett may have gone a little too far when he did this to Sanchez: 

Ouch, that really was rather dangerous wasn't it! And as you can imagine, Arsenal fans were NOT impressed with Bennett:

So was it actually intentional? Well, Bennett took to Twitter after the game to reveal that he wasn't trying to hurt Sanchez at all: 

What do you think, was Bennett trying to stop the Arsenal man or did he actually push Sanchez intentionally?
