Cape Town - Arsenal legend Thierry Henry sees no reason why star forward Alexis Sanchez would want to stay at the club after their performance against Liverpool.

The Gunners were thrashed 4-0 at Anfield on Sunday as the Reds ran riot with goals from Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, and Daniel Sturridge.

Sanchez made his first start of the Premier League season in the Liverpool clash after struggling with an abdominal injury. 

The Chilean has also been linked with moves away from the club throughout the transfer window, and Henry believes he would probably decide to leave considering how poor the team was at the weekend.

Henry told Sky Sports: "Why would he stay after watching this? After this type of performance? 

"That is why they [Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain] are not renewing their contracts. There is something wrong with Arsenal at the minute."

Sanchez and Oxlade-Chamberlain both have less than a year left on their current Arsenal contracts.

Meanwhile manager Arsene Wenger described his team's performance as "unacceptable" after they were swept aside by Liverpool at Anfield.

"Everything," said Wenger when asked what had gone wrong.

"I think from the first minute to the last minute we were not at the level requested for such a game," he said.
