Arsenal boss Wenger: I won't question Ozil, Alexis effort, but

Arsenal players keen on Sanchez stay, says Koscielny Wenger dismisses boycotting Arsenal fans in victory over Sunderland

"At the moment I think we should focus on short term and what's going on on Sunday and in the cup final".

"The second United approach came in 96, in the autumn just five weeks after I had stopped drinking and in that period of uncertainty when Arsene Wenger was taking over from the sacked Bruce Rioch".

"At the time, the wages weren't going to be much better, and I was stuck in my drinking and the London life with my mates and family around me".

"I think what is the most important for us is to win the football game we play on Sunday".

The 31-year-old is now managing his game time due to a minor calf problem and will miss the Premier League visit of relegated Sunderland on Tuesday night.

He missed the win over Sunderland in the hope of being fit to face Everton, but could now be left on the sidelines with one eye on the cup final.

Wenger is still yet to announce whether he will be signing a new contract at the club with his current deal set to expire this summer, while the futures of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil also remain unclear.

Destiny 2 is coming to PC exclusively via Blizzard's Battle.net
Interestingly enough, Bungie has confirmed the team is actually playing Destiny 2 from the comfort of their own homes. Players will also be able to add friends and form parties the same way Blizzard gamers can.

Although Wenger is often derided for defending his record for finishing in the top four rather than consistently winning silverware, Koscielny admitted he would rather qualify for next season's Champions League than win the FA Cup. For the players, it is always an important competition.

The former central defender, who has lost all six matches in charge of Granada in an unsuccessful attempt to save the club from LaLiga relegation, claims he was overlooked for a number of coaching roles at Arsenal under Wenger.

He added: "Arsene was absolutely the best man for Arsenal when he had his English defence and more exotic overseas attacking talent".

If Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is troubled about his future, he's not showing it. "If we don't, we don't", the German said.

However Keown believes Sanchez and Ozil's failure to make a significant contribution when Arsenal were enduring their worst run of form in Wenger's reign should lead to serious questions at the Emirates over whether either should stay at the club.

"This is a situation, maybe some players don't feel great but you need to be focused on our job and have the best results for Arsenal".

Writing in his new autobiography Sober, which is being serialised in The Sun, 50-year-old Adams said: "Perhaps Arsene thought I might be too challenging for him".
