Manchester United have endured a troubled start to their Premier League campaign, losing back-to-back matches against Brighton and Tottenham Hotspur.
While Arsenal have not fared much better, losing to both Manchester City and Chelsea, supporters of the North London side certainly enjoyed seeing Jose Mourinho’s side crushed on Monday evening – despite the fact it saw arch-rivals Spurs maintain their 100% start to the season.
Many fans on social media took the opportunity to mock Alexis Sanchez for the defeat, with the Chile international far from popular amongst Gunners fans after leaving the club in January to seal a move to Old Trafford.
Arsenal got Henrikh Mkhitaryan in return, who has impressed in his first few months at the club, but the situation for Alexis could not be more different as the former Barcelona man has struggled for form in Jose Mourinho’s side.
It was therefore not surprising to see some supporters jumping at the opportunity to mock their former fan favourite after United’s second defeat in a row and we have assembled some of the best reactions below.

Man United gave us Mikael Silvestre during our peak banter era, we gave you a finished Alexis Sanchez, who is on 500k a week for dropping constant 3/10 performances. We are now even.

Didn’t know I’ll ever be saying this, but the fact is Mkhitaryan has been a better player for Arsenal than Alexis Sanchez has been for United…
