  Alexis Sanchez and Arsene Wenger do not see eye to eye anymore. This is probably the reason as to why Sanchez does not play as much for Arsenal.

Barcelona v. Arsenal-Preview

February 22, 2011

With the first leg out of the way, I will be taking a look at the second leg, which will be played at the Camp Nou, on March 8th 2011.
