Published Add your comment

Arsenal fans, happy Wednesday!

We’d like to welcome you to today’s effort at something resembling a round-up. If there’s credible transfer news, we have it, if there’s breaking injury news, we have it, if there’s… you get the point.

Watch the video above to see yours truly hand you the headlines on a silver platter, or read on below if you’re that way inclined.

Sanchez annoyed with Uruguay

Alexis Sanchez may be fit and firing - as his Instagram post yesterday confirmed - but he’s been left less than impressed with international rivals Uruguay, after seeing Chile fall to a 3-0 loss.

Sanchez hinted at annoyance as to the fact that Uruguay don’t acknowledge they’ve lost, when they have, whilst then delivering something of a sarcastic congratulation.

"You need to know how to win and how to lose and I speak when I win and when I lose," Sanchez said.

"But what annoys me about past and present and other Uruguayan players ... is that they speak without acknowledging that they've lost.

"Today we lost and I congratulate them ... it's goodbye from the champions of the Americas."

Hopefully, he’ll have gotten over it by the time Arsenal player West Brom this weekend.


Wenger warning

Next, Arsene Wenger has warned that clubs and international teams might face a rift in the future with regards to the use of players.


The Frenchman said that it was time to put the cards on the table with the upcoming FIFA election - he described that as now or never.

French players pay tribute

Last but not least, Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny were amongst the French players to pay tribute for the way they were received during the international fixture between England and France last night.

A number of professionals admitted they were touched by the tributes offered at Wembley, with Koscielny saying that they had been shown ‘great respect’.
