It was a quiet night until then for the Gunners’ key man, but on the 68th minute with the score at 1-1 on the night, he tried too much skill too close to goal before being pick-pocketed by Arjen Robben.

The Dutchman made no mistake by slotting it home, leaving a despondent Sanchez to reflect on what he had done as Bayern extended their aggregate lead.

And just minutes later, he was substituted to a mixed reception from the Emirates Stadium crowd, waving to the fans in a sarcastic manner before taking his place on the bench.

It was another drubbing for sorry Arsenal, taking the aggregate score to a whopping 10-2, and Sanchez looks like he is heading for the exit after a training ground bust-up this week.

The score was sickening for Wenger and there were boos at the final whistle after the heaviest ever defeat at the Emirates Stadium.

And Sanchez’s apparent giggle on the subs bench unsurprisingly did not go down well with Arsenal fans – but fans of other clubs were bemused as well.
