While he may have been one of their star performers for so long, many Arsenal supporters are seemingly losing patience with Alexis Sanchez.
The 28-year-old bagged 30 goals and 19 assists last season, but he’s managed just five and four in 15 appearances in all competitions so far this year.
After turning in another poor display against West Ham United on Wednesday night at the London Stadium, it appears as though the Chilean international has irritated one too many supporters.
The problem with Sanchez’s current situation is with the fact that his contract expires at the end of the season, at which point he could walk away on a free transfer, it’s making him an easy scapegoat to blame for Arsenal’s problems.
With so much doubt over his long-term future at the club, it’s easy to criticise him for not showing enough commitment, and it’s an easy excuse and target to blame for the bigger issues for Arsene Wenger’s side.
Having said that though, it’s very clear to see that the argument against him is a strong one as he just didn’t look effective or committed enough against West Ham to lead by example and carry his team to a victory.
That’s seemingly the sentiment picked up by many Arsenal fans on Twitter, as seen below, as perhaps surprisingly, many are turning on him and questioning whether or not he should be dropped as he has become a little too predictable and doesn’t seem interested enough.
Agree with the comments below on Sanchez? Should Wenger drop him next game?
Sick of Sanchez. Absolutely sick of him. Plays for himself. Dickhead.

Shocking to think we turned down £60m for Sanchez.
It’s got to a point now where Walcott should probably be playing ahead of him.

Past few games Sanchez has been terrible. Bench him its not like he wants to be at the club

I think the whole league knows what Sanchez is going to do when he receives the ball at the edge of the box.
Pushes the ball inwards twice and then attempts to shoot. So two defenders just move close to him and don’t attempt anything.
He will lose it himself
