Benching Alexis Sanchez Was Debatable, Says Wenger

Arsene Wenger admitted his decision not to start Alexis Sanchez was "debatable" after his side fell to a humiliating 3-1 defeat at Liverpool on Saturday night.
Asked if not starting Sanchez backfired, Wenger told BT Sport:
"I felt the strikers suffered in the first half and we didn't dominate in the midfield. It is always debatable."

"We conceded cheap goals -- direct balls from the goalkeeper and you do not expect that in a game like this but we came back in the second half, responded well, but didn't perform at our level in the first half."

Asked if the result knocked them out of the top-four race, he responded: "It is a possibility to be in it as well so let's focus on that."
