Goal.com logo Goal.com 04-03-2017

Arsenal fans have been in a state of panic over Alexis Sanchez's future all season as contract extension talks rumble on, but their worry was sent into overdrive against Liverpool on Saturday.

The Chilean was not only benched for the Premier League fixture, much to the surprise of football lovers up and down the country, but his reaction to Liverpool taking the lead raised eyebrows even more.

Roberto Firmino fired Liverpool in front from a Sadio Mane cross as the cameras quickly glanced over to Alexis, who appeared to smile as the Brazilian wheeled away in celebration.

The meaning of Alexis' cheeky grin? Who knows, but that didn't stop Arsenal fans taking to Twitter to convey their anxiety that the forward could be set to leave at the end of the season.

Alexis seems happy. He's leaving at the end of the season
