Gunners lost 5-1 against the German side and are one step closer of being knocked out at the same stage of this competition for 7th year in a row.

It’s now emerged, per Goal, Arsenal’s best player Alexis Sanchez has asked Wenger if he can go away on a short break following Arsenal’s latest embarrassing defeat.

Wenger has granted Alexis permission and the player was spotted at Heathrow Airport on Thursday morning on his way to Italy for a short break.

Will Alexis play the FA Cup tie on Monday?

The Arsenal faithful and Wenger himself will be hoping that a few days away from the Emirates Stadium will allow Alexis to calm down, gather his thoughts and return to north London revitalised and raring to go.

It’s unclear whether Alexis will be involved in Arsenal’s next match, against non-league Sutton United in the FA Cup on Monday night, but it would appear to be the perfect match to hand the Chilean a much-needed break.
