That's Sanchez - Wenger hails Arsenal match-winner

Kenny Thornton | 15 May, 2017, 00:23

And the mythical no 10 has tipped his nephew Alex Iwobi to fight on for regular first-team football at Arsenal even if Arsene Wenger does not continue as manager. That comes after he was jeered by fans in the 3-0 loss at Crystal Palace, which led Wenger to change his tactics.

Who will Arsene Wenger pick to start for Arsenal against Stoke City?

Victory against the Potters would keep Arsenal's hopes of qualifying for the Champions League alive as they look to reel in either Liverpool or Manchester City.

Gazidis and Wenger were both present at an Arsenal transfer summit last month, when it was agreed the club will try to sign a striker, a central defender, a wide player, a left-back and a goalkeeper in the summer window.

"I wish we found that before", he said of Arsenal's recent revival. "Hopefully at the end we'll reach our goals".

Arsenal went into the game on the back of a 2-0 win over Manchester United and procured the first sight of goal, with Aaron Ramsey firing wide after a foray by Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Although they have not won there since 2010, losing on four of their eight visits, Wenger's men will be hopeful of ending that sorry sequence so long as Alexis Sanchez is in the team.

Sanchez's goal was his 50th in the Premier League, his 21st of the season and his 15th away from home.

Arsene Wenger hails striking options as Arsenal stay in top four chase
He's creative, not phased by anything, and he surprised everyone in the stadium tonight with his goal. Those games are against Stoke, Sunderland and Everton, teams who have little left to play for.

"We have to recover now physically and see how everyone recovers for Saturday". The Chilean's efforts emphasised the character which the team should show in every single game and have, in fairness, been exhibiting in the wake of their demoralising defeat at Tottenham.

"It's going to be a good atmosphere, it always is when Arsenal come to town", Hughes said.

"We'll need another strong performance at Stoke".

"He's got a small chance, he was not far [away from returning], practiced [on Tuesday] but was risky to play him [at Southampton]", Wenger said.

Sanchez struck the opener on the hour mark at St Mary's before Olivier Giroud came off the bench to make sure of the points with a close-range header.
