Arsenal boss Wenger worried Alexis becoming isolated from rest of squad

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is worried by the divide between Alexis Sanchez and his teammates.

The Mirror says it is understood that some of Sanchez's teammates are not impressed by his recent performances, a perceived lack of effort in training and his conduct over his contract which is due to expire at the end of the season.

Wenger is aware of the underlying issue and is trying to handle it before tensions get out of hand.

Chile star Sanchez, 29, who is expected to join Manchester City on a free next summer, has been in poor form before his two goals at Crystal Palace on Thursday night.

Sanchez's dip in performances has been a major talking point among the coaches and in the dressing room and it did blow up at Southampton earlier this month.
