Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez raged in the dressing room following their shock 2-1 defeat to Southampton in the Capital One Cup.

The Chilean scored the opener in that game from a stunning first half free-kick. However, goals from Dusan Tadic and Nathaniel Clyne earned the Saints a shock passage into the fourth round.

While some Arsenal players appeared unmoved by their early exit, it is now reported that Sanchez went on a rampage in the dressing room. The report states that he was simply distraught with losing a match. Having joined Arsenal from Barcelona in the summer, you can understand that the 25-year-old may not be used to the feeling of defeat.

"He was raging in the dressing room."

A source, speaking to Chilean newspaper La Tercera–brought to our attention, and translated, by Sport Witness–said: "He was raging in the dressing room. To some it seemed that defeat did not matter so much, but he was very angry. He dislikes to ever lose."

This is not the first time the Chilean publication has claimed to have the inside scoop on Arsenal's £35 million man. Earlier this week it claimed that Sanchez was currently dissatisfied with the level of service on offer at the Emirates.

Citing Mesut Ozil as a particular source of frustration, the report claimed that Sanchez was all-too aware of the growing reliance Arsenal had on him. However, those reports were quickly warped into actually unhappiness, which appear wide of the mark.

In fact Sanchez seemed to respond to the reports by upping his presence on social media, He sent his first official tweet as an Arsenal player and followed it up with a beautiful image of the English countryside a day later.


The same report also suggests that Sanchez is settling into life in the English capital nicely and has been spotted in several hot spots around Mayfair and Covent Garden in recent days.

Arsenal face Burnley on Saturday and Sanchez is expected to play a key role once again.
