The celebration for Alexis Sanchez’s crucial first goal caused speculation of a rift in the dressing room
But Gunners record scorer Henry accused some of Sanchez’s team-mates of snubbing his celebrations for his goal that put them 2-1 up.
Henry said: “There is a division in the team. He (Sanchez) is asking them to come and celebrate. ‘Why are they not coming?
Don’t you want to celebrate?’
“I don’t know what the situation is there but usually when your team scores you don’t look at who scores.
“If you start to think, ‘Shall I go, shall I not go’ there’s something we don’t know exactly what’s happening.
Sanchez gestured asking why his team-mates didn’t celebrate with him
Alexis Sanchez has caused a divide in the dressing room according to Henry and Souness
“What I’m trying to say is you’re not here for Alexis Sanchez, you’re here for Arsenal. Arsenal scored, go and celebrate.”
Sanchez celebrated his first with Mesut Ozil, Granit Xhaka, Alexandre Lacazette and Shkodran Mustafi. And TV pictures appeared to show Sanchez gesturing at the players who did not celebrate with him.
Henry, now a Sky pundit, added: “I noticed it. Sanchez made me notice it. It was like he thought he was alone.”
Wenger did not see the incident but saluted Sanchez’s Selhurst Park performance.
