Liverpool legend Steve Nicol: “Sanchez was awful” in Arsenal win over Palace
- Updated: August 18, 2014
The ESPN panel reviewed the two north London clubs on the opening weekend of the Premier League season and Liverpool legend Steve Nicol had some harsh words for Arsenal’s Chilean Alexis Sanchez.
Could it be that Nicol is upset Liverpool failed to get Sanchez as part of the deal that took Luis Suarez to Barcelona?
Most considered Alexis Sanchez to have had a decent enough Premier League debut as Arsenal beat Crystal Palace thanks to a late Aaron Ramsey goal.
Sanchez set up Laurent Koscielny for the Arsenal equaliser and also showed some great touches throughout.
Clearly not enough for Nicol who slammed his “deliveries” which were “horrendous”.
Nicol does think Alexis will have a”World Cup hangover”.
