Hector Bellerin Reacts To Laurent Koscielny 'Ignoring' Alexis Sanchez During Celebration

Hector Bellerin has responded to claims that teammate Laurent Koscielny decided to ignore Alexis Sanchez after his second goal against Crystal Palace on Thursday night.

Moments after the full-time whistle, Sky Sports pundit Thierry Henry suggested that Arsenal's dressing room could be divided after he noticed that certain players didn't celebrate Alexis Sanchez's 66th minute strike.

"There is a division in the team," he said on Sky Sports. "He is asking them to come. 'Why are they not coming? Don't you want to celebrate?"

Twitter user and Arsenal fan Akhil Vyas originally uploaded a clip that 'blatantly' shows Koscielny standing in his own half while others congratulated Sanchez.

The French defender just stands in his defensive position while other Arsenal players celebrate, a cause for concern according to Thierry Henry.

Bellerin has since put those rumours to bed with a response on Twitter.

The Spaniard responded to Arsenal photographer Stuart MacFarlane's picture of Koscielny celebrating with Sanchez after the goal.

It was only a simple emoji, but it proves that things are perfectly fine between Sanchez and Koscielny after people suggested that there was a division in the Arsenal team.

Sky pundit Graeme Souness originally agreed with Henry's comments, saying that the Arsenal team look divided and Sanchez may just be the reason behind a lack of unity.

"That tells you there is a divided dressing room. That shows they aren't having Sanchez at the moment." Souness said.

"I only see that teams are 5-1 up, not 2-1 up. You are elated, you have just scored a goal. It is clear there is a dynamic in the dressing room that all is not well."

It looks like Bellerin has put this argument to bed.
