Wenger on Sanchez, Ozil and selling our top players

Arsene Wenger has laughed off Alexis Sanchez's comments about wanting to play for a team with a "winning mentality," and said he thinks both he and Mesut Ozil want to stay at Arsenal.

The Chile international's commitment to the north London side has been questioned in recent months but there can be no questions asked about Sanchez's continued affection for his Golden Retrievers.

The Gunners have sold big players to other Premier League clubs in the past, but Wenger pretty much ruled that out this time around and in the future.

Goalkeeper Petr Cech, who limped off during Arsenal's loss at West Bromwich Albion this month, is expected to miss the next two games with calf injury. And while the official line initially was that it was for tactical purposes, the truth later emerged that he was sidelined for disciplinary reasons, after he was reported to have been involved in a dressing-room spat with some of his Arsenal teammates.

While on global duty, Sanchez - who has only a year and a half left on his contract - had said he wants to stay in London but at a team "with a winning mentality", amid growing speculation about interest from Chelsea.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger feels that Ozil will be ready for the City clash and that he has been training hard.

Wenger had initially joked about this saying he interpreted it in "a very positive way" because "there's only one team in London so he's happy!" but then got went serious. I think he's happy here.

'I'm not the type of player to chase after the ball the whole time, everyone knows that, ' Ozil told SportBild. When people give interviews in their home countries the interpretation is not what it always what he wanted to say.

He said: "I personally believe both of them want to stay".

"I don't see anything negative in that. I can understand that completely". It happened before when we had to sell our best players. That's not the case anymore.
