Wenger braced for knife-edge Arsenal season

Wenger braced for knife-edge Arsenal season

What time is Arsenal v Leicester?

"He made a decision to stay and it was one of the great days of recent weeks for me".

"You know when you have good players that there might be interest from other clubs but I wouldn't sleep at night if all the scenarios that you (the media) put to me happened".

"It would be unwise of him not to consult experts as it relates to his persisting knee injuries in order to help him because his place with Watford is seriously threatened and I don't see him staying past this season at this rate". They replaced Mohammed Elneny, who had assisted Lacazette to head in the first goal and Rob Holding.

What Wenger has quietly managed to assemble is a frontline with varied options, and he had the luxury of bringing on Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud with Arsenal chasing the game in the second half, while also switching to an extremely attack-minded 4-3-3 in the later stages.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger hopes the club's record signing Alexandre Lacazette can emulate Zlatan Ibrahimovic and adjust swiftly to English football.

"Overall we could say we were punished on every single mistake by a Leicester team who were very efficient going forward".

In closing, McAuliffe said he spoke with President Trump, where he mentioned a need for a movement that brings people together. Addressing reporters, Trump refused to name white supremacists or any specific group, blaming the violence "on many sides ".

Arsene Wenger saw substitute Olivier Giroud score a late victor to see off Leicester before admitting he gave the striker a chance to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer.

"I'm always looking for the positives, we came to the Emirates and the players executed the game plan. He's a collective player and an intelligent player".

"But the top seven, we're going to be in the four competitions, so there's no advantage for any one of us". Shinji Okazaki was the initial beneficiary with a fifth-minute equaliser.

Danny Welbeck was able to score late in the first-half to draw level at 2-2 at the break, but the action was far from done.

"If you were a manager, you're on the bench when you're 3-2 down with 20 minutes to go, and you win 4-3, you're more happy than concerned", Wenger said.

"I think we have those assurances so I haven't got to worry about that".
