Piers Morgan has questioned Alexis Sanchez for hugging Pep Guardiola after Arsenal were beaten 2-1 at Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

Former Barcelona manager Guardiola worked under Sanchez during his time with the Spanish giants, before he moved to the Emirates Stadium.

Broadcaster Morgan, who supports the north London club, amusingly stated that Sanchez should hug his teammate Mesut Ozil in order to wake him up after a poor display against their title rivals.

Arsene Wenger’s side opened the scoring in Manchester when Sanchez’ cute reverse pass found Theo Walcott who slotted home.

But the away team capitulated after the break with the hosts dominating the proceeding and scoring two goals via Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling.

Here is Morgan posting this message about Sanchez on his personal Twitter account.

“What is Sanchez doing here exactly?” said Morgan. “If you want a hug, give Ozil one and wake him up.”

Sanchez has been in scintillating form for his side this season, despite the Gunners losing two fixtures within a week.

The Chile international has played 23 Premier League and Champions League games this term, scoring 14 goals and supplying 12 assists.

Wenger’s side are fourth in the league table on 34 points from 17 games, losing three of those encounters – nine points behind leaders Chelsea and one point ahead of Tottenham.

They enter a busy and critical festive period where they will host West Brom on Boxing Day, before taking on London rivals Crystal Palace in the new year.
