After the match, Arsène Wenger confirmed that the Chile striker was withdrawn due to an injury picked up from a first-half tackle.
Read on for more from the manager.
on if Alexis was injured…
He was injured from the tackle in the first half. It was a bad tackle. His ankle is in an absolutely terrible state. He should not have played in the second half but he insisted that he wanted to come out. In the first half he was the one who created many chances, made dangerous situations and in the second half you could see that he couldn’t anymore. In the end we had to take him off. He should not even have played in the second half.
on if he’ll miss the Chile games…
Chile goes to Argentina for a massive game but they play only next week and if it’s only a kick, he will play. If the ligament is damaged, he will not play.
