Arsenal inherited 'great talent' in Henrikh Mkhitaryan, says Juan Mata

Arsenal boss Wenger quizzed over Aubameyang, Evans moves

Do Mesut Ozil's London-themed Instagram posts suggest he's happy at Arsenal?

The Gunners head to South Wales boosted by their League Cup semi-final triumph over Chelsea and rested following a free weekend, a outcome of the holders' early exit from the FA Cup at the hands of Championship side Nottingham Forest.

"At this stage of my career", he wrote on Instagram after moving to Arsenal in exchange for Alexis Sanchez, "I simply have to enjoy myself on the pitch and play".

"I think Mkhitaryan can play in all positions in midfield, box to box, certainly not a defensive role, holding player no but all the other positions are not out of reach", Wenger said.

The 31-year-old is expected to complete his move to the Blues on Transfer Deadline Day in a move which will help facilitate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's long awaited move to Arsenal.

But with Sanchez gone, Wenger hopes he can rebuild his side around the axis of Armenian playmaker Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil.

Pilot's actions in Sydney seaplane crash were 'totally inexplicable
Sydney Seaplanes , which resumed flights in mid-January, has audited all planes and put pilots through extra training. He was "an extremely experienced float plane pilot who had all the required qualifications and licences", Nagy said.

Swansea have failed to bring in any players in the January transfer window, but Carvalhal maintains they can still stay in the top division without new signings. "Of course! If I don't believe who will believe?" he added.

"He was one of the (reasons) to join Arsenal as well because everyone knows he's a great manager".

"What is a good warning for us is that Liverpool are an attacking team - you can not criticise them for not attacking, they are very unsafe going forward and they didn't manage to score against Swansea". These three guardians at the back are resilient, experienced and more than capable of cushioning Cech. On-loan midfielder Renato Ranches will miss the game while for Arsenal, Olivier Giroud will sit out as well.

Roberto Firmino extended Liverpool's lead on the stroke of half-time when he somehow squeezed the ball home from the goal-line after being played in by a clever Sadio Mane back-heel.

Mkhitaryan came on after the hour mark, and it was not a good omen for Arsenal as they promptly conceded a howler.
