Alexis Sanchez row reports "completely false" - Arsene Wenger

Arsene-Wenger3

"But you have that many times in the history of every squad". But for Arsenal, it has become a trend lately.

The 35-year-old Swedish striker appeared to deliberately elbow Tyrone Mings late in the first half and although he was acting in retaliation after the Bournemouth defender seemed to stamp on his head, a violent conduct charge from the Football Association seems inevitable.

It was the 34th goal that they had conceded in the season, the most among the top six in the Premier League.

Arsenal will tell Alexis Sanchez he can not join another Premier League club this summer.

Jamie Carragher also criticised Arsene Wenger on Monday Night Football, arguing he should have either started Sanchez or kept him out completely.

But Wenger said the negativity surrounding the club gets exaggerated at times, and couldn't help but make an appararent dig at North London rivals Tottenham, who were the only English team eliminated in the group stages of this year's competition. However, the midfield duo of Xhaka and Francis Coquelin were kept on their toes.

While there's nothing wrong with wanting to win, there's a certain way to go about confronting your teammates to avoid conflict. For Coquelin, it was yet another miserable game as he hardly had any impact on the game. Wenger's plan to go all-out and attack did not pan out as he would have thought.

United manager Jose Mourinho was left with no complaints after his side again failed to take maximum points from a game they dominated.




"He has 15 months left on his contract", Wenger said.

An entertaining game continued in that fashion with Firmino fractionally offside as he readied himself to tear through on goal and Petr Cech being forced to tip Coutinho's 18-yard shot over the Arsenal bar after Wijnaldum's lay-off.

Take the second goal of the half. His inclusion caused a headache for Nathaniel Clyne's exhausted legs but once the Reds regrouped, it would take something special to break the door.

However, they have fallen short against teams in the lower half of the table.

United stays sixth with 49 points, the same as fifth-placed Liverpool which hosts fourth-placed Arsenal later Saturday. Being compact and stable is the basis of each good display. Simon Mignolet booted the ball upfield and found Sadio Mane with acres of space near the right edge of the box. Before the game, Liverpool had just won one out of their nine Premier League meetings at Anfield.

'What I find hard for Wenger is that he's not in a position of strength.

PR matters and, more often than not, players can not match their employers' aptitude when it comes to sending out a message to the public at large. Everybody wants to push to get that starting chance.

"The analysis of the Leicester game was nothing for me to enjoy but only if you are really silly do you let the bad things influence you", he said. Playing Olivier Giroud made sense but Wenger said he wanted to play more direct and Alexis is the most direct player I know. The likeliest man to condemn Bayern to defeat over 90 minutes, if not 180, is Alexis Sanchez. That may even make the run to another FA Cup special, and could energize the team for one final top four fight.
