Wenger opens up over Sanchez future after Palace display

Sánchez was joined by only four of his team-mates including Xhaka and Lacazette after scoring his second goal

Speaking after Sanchez scored twice in Arsenal's 3-2 win over Crystal Palace on Thursday night, Wenger said: "I am not fearful but as you said that will be a subject that arises because of his contractual situation".

The home side went behind to a Shkodran Mustafi goal, which the defender took brilliantly to put past Julian Speroni, however, the Selhurst Park outfit fought back in the second half.

Despite James Tomkins ensuring a nervy finish for the visitors with an 89th minute headed goal, the win left Arsenal still in sixth place but they moved on to 37 points, alongside Tottenham Hotspur and to within a point of the top four.

Then, Palace were involved in a desperate battle to avoid relegation and they overwhelmed an Arsenal side that fell short in their efforts to finish in the top four, failing to qualify for the Champions League for the first time under Wenger.

That was a task that proved beyond them when they faced the Eagles last April and turned in one of their worst displays of the season when they fell to a 3-0 defeat.

With a brilliant chipped-pass from inside his own half, Jack Wilshere - often a peripheral figure this season - sent Sanchez into space in the Palace area and, after he impressively controlled, the Chilean routinely poked beyond Speroni.

Arsene Wenger insists he is "not fearful" of Alexis Sanchez leaving Arsenal in January.

Wilshere added on Sky Sports: "I spoke to the boss and he said he will speak to me so we'll see when he speaks to me, I am sure it will be done".

The equalizer began on the left wing four minutes into the second half; Wilfried Zaha used his footwork to cross towards Townsend, who under little pressure finished first-time into the bottom left corner beyond the diving Petr Cech. We were on the front foot at 1-1 and looking good value, that we might kick on, but we conceded two goals - especially the second one, which was a body blow.

Asked what motivates them with such a commanding lead, Sterling replied: "Keep winning - I think that's the biggest motivation you can have, to have the next games come so think and fast to try to keep that run going". "But the best way to show they are committed is to deliver that kind of performances". For us, it is a question of keeping fighting.
