Robert Huth takes the piss out of Alexis Sanchez by showing off his injury from Arsenal ‘battle’

Nicely done


Nicely done.

Alexis Sanchez embarrassed himself on Wednesday night in the game between Arsenal and Leicester City.

The Gunners forward dropped to the ground when hit by the ball from a Christian Fuchs throw-in.

It was a ridiculous piece of play acting from a great player, reminiscent of this from Rivaldo back at the 2002 World Cup:

Actually, maybe it wasn’t that bad.

But it was still embarrassing and unnecessary from Sanchez.

The Chilean was at least able to laugh at himself following the match, showing off his swollen lip on Twitter.

Hopefully this horrific injury doesn’t prove too serious.

Despite appearing to laugh at himself, Sanchez’s snap didn’t go down well. Former England rugby player Ben Kay tweeted his disgust at Chilean, comparing him unfavourably to a rugby player.

Robert Huth has gone for a different approach. The Leicester defender, who scored an own-goal in the game at the Emirates, has taken the piss out of Sanchez by showing off his own horror injury from the match.

Leicester’s players will undoubtedly wear Huth’s name on their jerseys this weekend as a show of solidarity for their fallen teammate. Get well soon, Robert.
