Arsene Wenger: 'I love Olivier Giroud as a man and a player'

Arsene Wenger: 'I love Olivier Giroud as a man and a player'

Alex Iwobi. He'd been floating around the fringes of the first team for a while, and after 26 appearances last year, in which he scored four goals, the 21-year-old is definitely ready to make a breakthrough this season.

"I can't tell you that at the moment", he said. Overall I believe that it's down to us.

Manchester United begin their bid to be genuine Premier League title contenders on Sunday when they face West Ham United knowing that an improvement in home form is vital. However, City are favourites for the league at 13/8.

With Arsenal failing to qualify for this season's UEFA Champions League, Sanchez, who was Arsenal's top scorer in the league with 24 goals last season, has been heavily linked with a move away from The Emirates although Wenger has repeatedly said this offseason that the Chile worldwide is not for sale.
