We will play all competitions seriously this season: Wenger

Arsene Wenger has warned Alexis Sanchez that he will have to earn his place back in Arsenal's starting line-up as he seeks to make his first Premier League start since the collapse of his Manchester City move on deadline day.

Ozil has come under intense criticism for his workrate under Arsene Wenger at the North London club, with many fans constantly joking he goes missing in the big games.

Manchester United are keen to land the Germany playmaker Ozil, with the Mirror claiming he will snub a new contract offer at Arsenal.

Wenger confirmed Theo would be checked by the clubs medical team but it seems the injury wasn't anything serious as he was also able to take part in full training today.

Hector Bellerin has urged his Arsenal teammates to "keep building momentum" as they look to climb up the Premier League table with victory over West Bromwich Albion.

It's a Sunday with just one game Premier League game on the schedule (Brighton and Hove Albion beat Newcastle United 1-0), so it's transfer rumors that are receiving all the attention instead.

After the bad defeat against Liverpool, Arsenal have won three of their last four games. Most of all, however, he was a disciplined, hard-working asset - two traits rarely associated with his style at Arsenal, mainly because, as their best player, he is so often used as a scapegoat for the club's wider failures. "Sometimes you lose players in these competitions".

"Of course I sympathise with (Oxlade-Chamberlain), with everybody", Wenger said. But the level of your performances is not permanent.
