Sanchez trolled by Leicester defender Huth over throw-in controversy

Goal.com logo Goal.com 28-04-2017

Leicester City defender Robert Huth has poked fun at Alexis Sanchez following the controversial incident involving the Arsenal star and Christian Fuchs.

Sanchez went to ground clutching his face after Fuchs threw the ball at his shoulder in the closing stages of the Gunners' 1-0 Premier League win over Leicester at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday.

The Arsenal forward had been trying to block Fuchs' attempt at a long throw as Leicester pushed for a late equaliser following Huth's unfortunate own goal in the 86th minute.

'Alli could have played for Arsenal'

The incident led to a barrage of criticism of the Chile international, who appeared eager to explain his actions by posting a picture of himself on Twitter sporting a swollen lip in the home dressing room.

Huth has now issued a sarcastic response by tweeting an image of his own post-match wound: a minute cut on his finger.
