  • Arsenal Agree Deal To Sign £92m Liverpool Target On Lucrative 5-Year Contract

Wenger decided to bench Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette for the Liverpool fixture - a move that was heavily criticised and the Arsenal manager is likely to reinstate the two into the starting lineup again as he seeks a firm response from his squad to the humiliating 4-0 loss.

While most would never have predicted Bournemouth would do so well in the Premier League, Howe is refusing to believe that ninth is the best it can get.

Still, this is Arsenal.

The governing body of European football introduced FFP rules in 2013, which require clubs to balance spending with income. "It is uncomfortable and not the way to work", he said.

The German playmaker has refused to sign a contract extension and sees himself at the club until June 2018.

The Frenchman has stayed loyal to Arsenal since joining them in 1996, although former United chairman Martin Edwards has revealed that the Red Devils offered him the chance to replace Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Gunners finished the match with 10 men after losing Coquelin to injury and already having used all three substitutes.

The Emirates Stadium demanded a good showing from Arsenal after a disappointing start to the season for the Gunners.

"The boys were unlucky against Man City, but we can't keep saying that because against Arsenal we were nowhere near it. Next week every single man has to be better, stand up and be counted".

"He is focused", Wenger said. More than people were happy with me, I was always happy here.

But Mesut Ozil is the one who has come under heavy fire from the now retired Arsenal players for his unwillingness to track back and press for the ball. The main thing for me for this season is the principles remain the same.

Sanchez stayed after Arsenal was unable to sign a replacement in time and the manager said he was confident the Chile international was fully committed to the team's cause. "He's had a few surgeries so you are always cautious to set a time or date, but overall, yes it looks positive".
