Wenger criticises Alexis Sanchez; defiant over star's future

Gilberto Silva played for Arsene Wenger for six years

He opted to start Olivier Giroud up front, but failed to change the style of play to accommodate the Frenchman, who is fairly strong in the air.

"That's where we want to go". Liverpool appeared to be much more balanced whereas Arsenal seemed perplexed without the ill Mesut Ozil and Sanchez.

Asked directly if the reports were true, Wenger said: "Completely false".

Sanchez's future at the club had already been in serious doubt as he has refused to sign a contract extension, and the fallout with Wenger only increases the likelihood of the Chilean leaving the club this summer.

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright said he would be looking to leave the club if he was in Sanchez's position. "We have to go and take it and not wait for the result", said Wenger to SkySports ahead of the game on Saturday.

"Alexis Sanchez has 15 months on his contract so the decision on whether he is here will depend on Arsenal Football Club". What was bad in the first half was the collective performance.

The Gunners are trying their best to hold on to the star duo but sources reveal that the Chilean has now made a decision to wait until Arsenal's top four finish is guaranteed before taking a final call on his Arsenal future.

Bachelorette Andi Dorfman Writing "Sex and the City" Book
Raven happily accepts, then she warns Nick that she has only ever had sex with one other guy, and he never made her orgasm. Wonder who told her?! Moreover, the source notes that the 36-year-old Viall is stunned seeing Dorfman at his hotel door.

More often than not, an eager kid benefits from the kindness of their sporting heroes and the players who do make a point of making a fan's day ought to be applauded. "That is the focus, to come back to our strength".

Chelsea, still the runaway leaders on 63 points, play at West Ham United on Monday while, on Sunday, second-placed Tottenham Hotspur, on 53, host Everton, and Manchester City, 52, visit Sunderland.

Arsenal now find themselves 13 points behind Chelsea but one point ahead of Liverpool going into the match at Anfield, not that Wenger is giving up on the title.

Liverpool have a fine record against the Premier League's leading sides this season, which is just about the only solace for Jurgen Klopp as he prepares for Saturday's crucial clash with Arsenal. "Coming up to the game we had a really hard week". When the week starts after Leicester everybody was angry, then we produce this performance against Arsenal. We analysed it and that wasn't enjoyable. Yes, but the transfer window in the winter didn't give us any opportunity.

"What do you want to learn first - be consistent or beat the best teams in the world?"

Incredibly entertaining of course, but in marked contrast to table toppers Chelsea who aren't exactly boring but know better how to close out their wins. It's not usual to come back like this.

Arsene Wenger looked at his away trip to Liverpool, where there was a top four spot on the line.
