Fans will absolutely love Lineker savagely mocking Arsenal player
By Amir Mir
Former Tottenham striker Gary Lineker has savagely mocked Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez following his antics against Leicester on Wednesday night.
The 28-year-old was involved in a controversial incident during his side’s 1-0 win over the Foxes.
Sanchez fell to the floor in a theatrical manner when Christian Fuchs threw the ball at him whilst taking a throw-in for his team.
At the time, Leicester were chasing an equaliser and Fuchs was clearly annoyed that Sanchez was standing too close to him.
As a result, he threw the ball at the Chilean which appeared to hit his shoulder/bottom of his chin as Sanchez then fell to the floor after a slight pause.

Sanchez will take to the field for his side when they face north London rivals Tottenham on Sunday afternoon at White Hart Lane.
Despite a poor campaign for his club, the two-time Copa America winner has had an outstanding season as an individual.
He has played 44 matches in all competitions, scoring 24 goals added with his 18 assists, with the majority of those games played in a forward role.
Furthermore, he has found the back of the net on 19 occasions in 32 league games and supplied ten assists.
Sanchez last scored against Middlesbrough ten days ago when Arsene Wenger opted to change formation and play him alongside Olivier Giroud up top.
