The Arsenal forward started Saturday's defeat at Liverpool on the substitutes' bench amid reports of a row with team-mates

Arsene Wenger insists reports of a training ground bust-up involving Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez are ‘completely false’.

Ozil ruled out of Bayern game

The Chile international was a surprise omission from the Gunners' starting line-up in Saturday's 3-1 defeat by Liverpool at Anfield, a decision for which Wenger drew widespread criticism.

Reports later emerged that Wenger made that call following Sanchez leaving the training pitch mid-session leading to a heated exchange with team-mates.

But Wenger has insisted that such stories were created with the sole purpose of filling space in newspapers.

Speaking at a news conference ahead of Tuesday's Champions League last-16 second-leg tie with Bayern Munich, he said: "Yes, [reports of a falling out with Sanchez are] completely false.

"I understand you have to fill newspapers and I respect that.

"We have to accept that."
