Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez's proposed move to Manchester City this summer could still be

Liverpool face an Arsenal team that still has more questions than answers about it. From Michael Thomas in 1989 to Georginio Wijnaldum in 2017 via Robbie Fowler's four-minute hat-trick and Andrey Arshavin's four in one game - and far too many other great moments to list - it has simply never been boring.

"The intelligence of his runs and the quality of his technique is very good".

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is fit to return for Sunday's Premier League meeting with Liverpool, manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed.

"We were on the case past year already, so I came back, I knew the player".

They will play Belarusian champions BATE Borisov, Cologne, fifth in last season's Bundesliga, and another fallen member of Europe's aristocracy, Red Star Belgrade, after a generally kind draw which saw them avoid such lurking dangers as Real Sociedad, Nice and Hoffenheim.

There is talk that his call-up to the squad could interfere with any proposed move away from the club, but away from that, Paul Merson insists that the superstar simply must play.

"The inflation sometimes is so quick within the transfer market that the timing of your buys is very important", Wenger said ahead of his side's trip to Liverpool on Monday (AEST).

Arsenal finished fifth in the Premier League last season and failed to qualify for European football's elite competition for the first time since Arsene Wenger took over as manager in 1996. "His interest is to do well".

And now The Telegraph report that Arsenal feel their top two targets - centre-back Virgil van Dijk and winger Thomas Lemar - will not become available in the next week. It just feels good, I can not say differently.

"Look, in a professional job I always think that you have to make sure with your commitment that the guy who pays you gets what he is paying you for".

The former Gunners defender told the Daily Mail: "One of the main problems for Arsenal at Stoke last week was that Mesut Ozil did not want to close down with the other forwards". He looks ready. He's not played for a long time so I will have to decide what I do with him.

"Arsenal are in a position where they can keep [Sanchez] and he'll play this season before walking out on a free transfer, they're in a position where they can do that now". "But I think what hurt him a lot was to miss the FA Cup Final".

The Gunners had the worst record in games involving the top six last season, claiming nine points and losing five of 10 matches.
