Arsenal boss Wenger includes Alexis in squad for Crystal Palace clash

Juan Mata

Getty Juan Mata should be kept by Jose Mourinho claims Shaka Hislop

Wenger told reporters he couldn't see why anyone would leave Arsenal and pointed out that if Manchester City pulled out of the running it was a sign of the sort of demands that Sanchez was making, demands that Arsenal couldn't make.

Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the former Citizens midfielder Barton said: "I think Man United had to buy him". After that, we analyse the pros and the cons.

"We did what we tried to do and went as far as we could".

The Armenia worldwide was left out of Manchester United's squad for Saturday's 1-0 win at Burnley as he nears a move to the Emirates Stadium that will see Alexis Sanchez move in the other direction.

It is a fearless move by Walcott but it is the right decision at this stage of his career.

The return of German playmaker Mesut Ozil, who laid on a handsome backheeled assist for Lacazette's goal, also helped Arsenal fans to forget the absence of Sanchez, who was left out of the squad for a second straight game.

"In this moment, there is no competition for places, we have four attacking players for three positions (behind striker Romelu Lukaku), three are starting, one is on the bench", said Mourinho of Martial, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata. "It is the lack of clarity". It was a great win because many teams come here and lose or draw.

"You would expect that, they've got the financially strength to do that, as well as the expectation".

It has been one the biggest transfer stories of the January transfer window, but after weeks and months of speculation, Alexis Sanchez's move from Arsenal is expected to be announced in the coming hours.

Mesut Ozil would play on the right hand side, while Alexandre Lacazette (or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang) will play through the middle.

"We know the way they play, they are better than anyone playing that way, and you need to adapt to it to be successful". Nacho Monreal opened the score after six minutes and he provided two assists to Alex Iwobi and Laurent Koscielny, who added the second and the third goal in the game, respectively.

That is always the danger of signing a player on massive money.
