Arsenal players keen on Sanchez stay, says Koscielny

Posted May 19, 2017

Granit Xhaka's lofted pass was squared by Mesut Ozil and Sanchez volleyed in his 22nd goal of the league campaign from beneath the crossbar. We have Petr Cech, [David] Ospina, we have Wojciech Szczesny who is only on loan at Roma and has had an exceptional season.

And Mustafi believes his side are very much in the running for a top four finish, ahead of their final league game of the season against Everton on Sunday.

Now there are calls for mass boycott of Tuesday's match at home to Sunderland. The German is definitely a player capable of individual brilliance, but he is truly at his magnificent best when his teammates are raising their level to match his creative ability.

"Once he is on the pitch and gets the ball, he always becomes a devil and forgets the pain".

His assist for Sanchez might not have looked particularly spectacular but the decision-making that preceded it as well as the technical ability it needed were quite simply sublime.

"Sanchez and Ozil downed tools during those games".

Adams, who has a statue outside the Emirates Stadium, reckons he is too big a character for Wenger and that counted against him.

Wenger insists Arsenal can still salvage their turbulent season by defying the odds to snatch a Champions League place on the final day.

"Sanchez will have a test today (Monday)", said Wenger.

"Sanchez was maybe not completely 100 per cent tonight but he dug deep".

"When you play football you want to play ideally with a packed stadium, but we are quite spoilt with that overall".

The Daily Mail claim that the club are set to resume contract talks with the Chilean winger following the FA Cup final at the end of May, with the player insistent on the six-figure sum.

Still, Pickford's performance was worthy of praise from the Frenchman, who said, "He had an exceptional night. Sunderland fought and you want that in the Premier League - that's what you want from every team".

"Manchester United twice tried to sign me but I turned them down both times because I was Arsenal through and through", wrote Adams.

The Gunners lost at Goodison Park earlier in the season.

However, according to the Daily Express, Madrid players would prefer the club to keep Isco and sell Gareth Bale this summer, as they are getting frustrated with his injury issues that have kept him out of the team for most of this season.
