Alexis Sanchez sends message to Andy Murray on Twitter before Arsenal loss

Alexis Sanchez has invited Andy Murray to come and watch an Arsenal game at The Emirates

Alexis Sanchez has taken to social media to invite tennis star Andy Murray to come and watch an Arsenal game at Emirates Stadium, before his team-mates slumped to a humiliating 4-0 loss to Southampton on Saturday evening.

Sanchez is currently out injured with a hamstring problem and is not due to return back to action for the north London side until the new year.

However, the Chilean was clearly happy to see former Wimbledon and US Open champion Murray don an Arsenal shirt featuring Sanchez’s name with his brother Jamie on Christmas Day.

Jamie Murray shared the picture above on his personal Twitter account on Christmas Day, featuring him in a Manchester United shirt and Andy in an Arsenal kit.

And Sanchez extended an invitation for Murray to come and watch him and his Arsenal team-mates in action at The Emirates in his personal box.

Sanchez tweeted on Saturday evening:

Arsenal spurned their chance to move top of the Premier League table on Saturday as they were comprehensively beaten at Southampton.
