Wenger on Sanchez, Ozil and selling our top players

The Frenchman has not confirmed if he will leave the Emirates when his current deal expires this summer, or he will sign the two-year deal on the table and stay.

Former Manchester City chairman and lifelong fan of the club David Bernstein admits to some disquiet as the team prepare for Sunday's Premier League trip to Arsenal.

The poll conducted found that of the 1,000 members balloted, a massive 78% are against the idea of Wenger being handed a new two-year contract, a huge swing in the other direction from the majority that were hugely supportive of him just two years ago. I will remain like that.

"My attachment to this club, at the moment it is as it is and I do not see any escape route to have less responsibilities because I might not be here".

"I'm 28 years old, I still have a lot ahead of me".

"My commitment will be exactly the same all the time". The time I spent here doesn't influence at all my attitude. It is 13 years since Arsenal last won the league and their 10-2 aggregate defeat by Bayern condemned them to a seventh successive last 16 exit in the Champions League.

Pep Guardiola expects Arsenal to be even more unsafe against Manchester City due to their wretched run of form in the Premier League.

Victory for Arsene Wenger's Arsenal would end a Premier League win drought of almost two months, and be their first over one of the "Big Six" since they beat Chelsea 3-0 in September, a result which saw the west London side's coach Antonio Conte change tactics and kick-start a charge towards the title.




The London club's upheaval in recent months continues to cast doubt over Wenger's future at the club, as well as the future of the players, should their manager continue in his role. That's not the case anymore.

Sánchez has one-and-a-half years left on his contract. "I personally believe that both of them want to stay and I hope that the club will find an agreement".

Iwobi, however, remains optimistic the key duo will extend their contracts with the club.

The handling of Wenger's contract situation drew even more negative replies, with 86 per cent responding "No" when asked "Do you think the way that the Arsenal Board have dealt with Arsene Wenger's contract is in the best interests of Arsenal Football Club?"

"Don't try to make me announce today something I don't want to because I'm not in a position to do it", he declared. "It's about coaching in general because now I'm on the other side I understand how hard it is".

Sanchez played every minute for Chile in both of their games during the worldwide break, producing a freekick in the fifth minute of Tuesday night's win over Venezuela to further justify the £50milllion fee Arsenal are demanding for him.

A visit from a side vying for similar prizes could present Wenger and his players with a way of addressing their recent slide.

Wenger was critical of how his players had performed in their previous game - the 3-1 loss at West Bromwich Albion - acknowledging that "there was something missing". I'll let you know soon. In a very positive way.
