Latest Scoops

Wenger says Sanchez came with the #afc team to the hotel the night before playing #cpfc and was ready to play but he let him go as the deal to join #mufc was then agreed that evening.
Wenger rules out Welbeck loan move away: "I want Danny to stay here."
Wenger on a possible Aubameyang deal: "Confident or not confident, I don't know. We are not close to a deal for Aubameyang with Dortmund or anybody else."
Wenger: "We might have Ramsey back in the squad. He as a test today. We have uncertainty about Nacho Monreal. Giroud and Welbeck are a fraction short."
At Colney. Wenger on Sanchez/Mkhitaryan swap: "I believe we lose a world class player and gain a world class player. How efficient will that work? It will be down to the qualities of both players."
#afc are hopeful signing Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang will help convince Ozil to commit to a new contract. Wenger not given up on Ozil yet. Story here:

Putting aside the fact this is an awful photo, Cabaye left the Emirates on crutches in a protective boot but says he has only twisted his ankle. #cpfc
FT 4-1 #afc Palace restored a modicum of pride with a much better second half showing but the damage was already done. Could have been a difficult afternoon for (& Wenger) given Sanchez's exit but some of their football today was superb.
Kolasinac is on. In midfield. So a left-back/wing-back is is midfield while a midfielder - Ainsley Maitland-Niles - plays at left-back. Go figure. Still, a minor point - #afc have been good today. 4-1, 84 mins gone.
#afc 4-1 #cpfc Cech's wait for a 200th PL clean sheet continues. Milivojevic scores with a fine volley.
