Arsene Wenger refuses to criticise West Ham over performance against Liverpool

Arsene Wenger refuses to criticise West Ham over performance against Liverpool

Arsenal's top scorer Alexis Sanchez faces a fitness test to determine his availability for tomorrow's Premier League clash against relegated Sunderland while midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been ruled out, manager Arsene Wenger said.

Three straight wins have kept Arsenal in contention for a place in next season's Champions League and few will expect them to slip up against the already relegated Black Cats.

Besides significant injury problems, Moyes said in his pre Arsenal presser: "I'm more concerned that I've now got others who are saying they're injured as well, but we will go there and be committed".

City look nearly certain to achieve the bare minimum of a top-four place and could only finish below Arsenal if they lost at Watford, Arsenal won and there was a five-goal swing, with Wenger's side scoring more than City on the day.

"I felt he had something left still", said Wenger, who only made a decision to start Sanchez at 4pm on the day of the game.

C-919: China's first passenger plane completes maiden flight
Comac says more than 200 Chinese companies and 36 universities have been involved in research and development of the C919. Those two aircraft have some 80 years' experience between them - 30 years for the A320 and 50 years for the Boeing 737.


"At the end of the day, if we make 75 points we can only be beaten by one point".

"It is a hard situation, we don't know what happens with the boss", he said.

Qualifying for the Champions League is crucial for teams who want to bolster their squad during the summer transfer window (and not lose top talent).

"If everybody is absolutely devastated when we finish third in the league, I promise you I will not be here if you finish 15th one day". The player was in full team training yesterday, but it would still be sensible to rest him, though I wouldn't want to be the one to tell the Chilean that he's not allowed to play football.

Wenger claimed not to have noticed the massive number of empty seats inside the stadium or to care about them.

City of Montreal declares state of emergency from flooding
Jean-Francois Blais, who lives in central Quebec and had also been affected by the floods, called for more government help. Canada's national capital region has also seen severe flooding, with high water levels in the Ottawa and Rideau rivers.


"The difference in class showed, but the commitment and effort from my players was there all the way", said Moyes.

"I thought the team did a lot of good things".

But Wenger said it didn't affect his players either. It's not important what the individual player wants, all that counts is the team. We do our job and we have done that tonight.

'I would hate it if anyone would question me if I was going to chuck a game away'.
