Arsenal fans mock Alexis Sanchez on Twitter after beating Chelsea to reach Carabao Cup final. See details...

Arsenal fans have taken to social media to mock Alexis Sanchez as the Gunners made it through to the Carabao Cup final just days after the Chilean departed for Manchester United.

An Antonio Rudiger own goal and a second-half strike from Granit Xhaka were enough to see Arsene Wenger's side progress despite Eden Hazard putting Chelsea in front.

Delighted with the victory, Gunners fans immediately turned their attention to ridicule Sanchez, who left the club in a straight swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

'Hey @Alexis_Sanchez, you watching this? We just qualified to a final. Did u?', quipped another.

'@Alexis_Sanchez could have stayed at @Arsenal would be in a cup final, could have gone to @ManCity would have been in a final .... decided to join @ManUtd for football reasons,' wrote another including money emojis.

The Gunners beat Chelsea 2-1 at the Emirates with Granit Xhaka scoring the winning goal

Sanchez will earn £350,000 a week at United over a four-and-a-half-year contract, rising to £450,000 when his image rights are added in, and £600,000 including bonuses.

No money has changed hands between the clubs, with Mkhitaryan going the other way and both players being valued at £35million — though, in Sanchez’s case, he only had four months left on his contract at Arsenal.

Sanchez has been given the iconic No 7 shirt worn by the likes of George Best, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo.
