Mourinho will be hoping the other Ozil turns up at Arsenal

Arsene Wenger says Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil will not be leaving Arsenal in the January transfer window. "When he gets in the box and he tends to put them away".

The pair are both out of contract at the end of the season but Wenger says he is hopeful they will still be Arsenal players next term.

After recovering from injuries over the summer, both Sanchez and Ozil have stepped up big in recent weeks as the Gunners have won four of their last five games and moved up to fourth in the PL table.

Arsenal host Huddersfield tomorrow morning (Singapore time), with Oezil likely to be missing because of the illness that ruled him out at Turf Moor.

Wenger said: "I always considered his interests, because he has been an Arsenal player since a kid".

"I felt that I was not pleased with everything, but we started well and I think after that we slowly lot a bit of our edge, the urgency in our game and a little bit as well in the second half we gave them one or two chances".

The Gunners, who finished fifth and won the FA Cup last season, are now fourth in the Premier League table as they prepare to welcome Jose Mourinho's men to north London.

"Unless something unbelievable happens, I can't see why that would change". That's the decision I took at the start of the season. Will they stay longer? That's impossible to answer today because I don't know. "But they have a contract until the end of the season".

'[Beyond this season] I am not the only one who will decide that but if it's my decision yes.

Lacazette has now scored seven Premier League goals for Arsenal so far this season, and Manchester United legend Neville has been very impressed by his solid form.

Speaking on BBC Radio, he said: "Mesut Oezil to Manchester United on a free looks a shoo-in".
