Arsenal kept their slim title hopes alive with a 2-0 win over relegation-challenged Hull City in their English Premier League match on Saturday at the Emirates Stadium in London.
The Chilean forward contentiously scored with his hand in the 34th minute and netted a stoppage-time penalty to get Arsenal back to winning ways following successive defeats by Watford and leaders Chelsea.
Afterwards Hull defender Andrew Robertson said referee Mark Clattenburg apologised for not disallowing the goal when he saw the halftime replay. The midfielder was sent off and Sanchez made no mistake with the penalty.
Arsene Wenger gave a classic response when quizzed about Alexis Sanchez's controversial opening goal against Hull City on Saturday - "I didn't see it!"
Wenger confirmed he had spent time with Wright in a small group of "four or five" people on Thursday at a question-and-answer session put on for the corporate fans from the Emirates Stadium's swanky Diamond Club.
That elusive second came after a Arsenal raid on their opponents' goal.
The visitors had created some good opportunities themselves and did so again after the break, but without any completely scary momentsd for us, although Arsenal were not exactly banging the door down for a second.
The two decisions left Hull manager Marco Silva aggrieved. I am responsible for many things but not the referee's decisions.
The Gunners take on Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday night in Germany.
But in between those two incidents, the impressive Lazar Markovic was brought down by Gibbs when he would have been clean through on goal.
Sam Clucas was dismissed for blocking Lucas Perez's goal-bound header and Sanchez dispatched the spot-kick for his 17th goal of the campaign. Even after Sanchez's opener, the Gunners still looked uncomfortable at times.
