Alexis Sanchez is one hell of player, but this is just embarrassing.
His Arsenal side were on their way to securing a 1-0 victory over champions Leicester City, and the Chilean appeared keen to run down the clock.
Christian Fuchs looked to launch in a throw, and Sanchez stood right in the firing line. It cannoned off the Arsenal talisman, who took a moment to register what had just happened before falling to the ground holding his face.
The replays showed that the ball didn’t make any sort of contact with his face.
