Arsenal Will Miss ‘Special’ Sanchez, Says Willian
Chelsea winger Willian says that Arsenal may live to regret the decision to sell AlexisSanchez to Manchester United. The Blues face the Gunners in tonight’s Carabao Cup semi-final 2 nd leg to determine who will meet Manchester City in the final.
The Brazilian likened Alexis’ importance to Arsenal to Eden Hazard and Chelsea, telling theEvening Standard, “To lose this kind of player is not easy. It would be like losing Eden here -he is a great player.
“Is he that important to them? Of course. No one wants to lose this kind of player. They aretwo great players but Eden is still here. Great players have quality to play in matches likethis. Arsenal have other players but Sanchez is special.”
Willian also insists that his side will be motivated by the thought of beating their Londonrivals, “It’s not just the Chelsea fans who don’t like losing to Arsenal. We, the Chelseaplayers, don’t like losing to Arsenal either. We are going into this game very strong.”
