Arsene Wenger reveals Alexis Sanchez doubtful for Arsenal's game with Sunderland

Arsene Wenger says Alexis Sanchez's thigh injury doesn't "look too good" but hasn't ruled out the forward from being fit to play against Sunderland on Tuesday.

Had the referee, Mike Dean, spotted Peter Crouch's cheeky handball for his ninth career goal against Arsenal, it would have been a third clean sheet in a row for Wenger's side.

Wenger didn't refer to any team specifically this morning but he clearly wasn't impressed with the Hammers limp display against Jurgen Klopp's men yesterday, as the Reds ran out 4-0 winners at the London Stadium.

"It is a hard situation when you don't know what is happening with the boss but you are professional", he told Sky Sports. "He is so keen that maybe ... It could be a possibility that he recovers for tomorrow".

Wenger has yet to confirm he will still be in charge next season despite reports in France over the weekend that he has agreed a one-year deal.

The Chilean has been prolific this season, scoring 21 goals and providing ten assists.

It was a game which didn't set the pulses racing until Alexis Sanchez scored his 22nd Premier League goal of the season with 20 minutes to go before he added his 23rd soon after.

Trump threatens Comey: 'Better hope' there are no tapes of our conversations
The president's original dismissal letter to Comey indicated that he was being fired for his handling of the Clinton email probe. And on Friday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer refused to deny that Trump may have recorded his conversation with Comey.

"He plays now in a position where he can provide as well as score".

"He's become a complete player and has developed very well here at Arsenal Football Club".

Although this has been a disappointing season to date, the next three games could see them qualify for the Champions League and win the FA Cup, which would make a strong case for Arsene Wenger to stay on.

Barcelona have made Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin one of their top transfer targets this summer, and according to reports the Gunners are willing to do business on one condition. "Overall I think it's hard to get points in this league, it's hard for everybody". As a result, before the last round ahead of the Welsh "Tigers" by four points, and the team Marco Silva has no chance of escape. "And we kept a clean sheet again".

The Black Cats have drawn 1, lost 3 and won just 1 of their last five fixtures in the English Premier League and quite simply look deflated and utterly demotivated. "For example, we had to fight very hard at Stoke and Southampton".

Arsene Wenger has called on Arsenal fans to turn out in force for Tuesday's game against Sunderland rather than take part in a boycott created to hasten his removal as manager of the London giants. That will be hard to swallow but that should not change completely the judgement of the team.

They will be back in Europe's biggest competition after winning the league and missing out last season. When you have a player like this in your team, to show the way we want to grow together, it is important and I think he has a lot of players behind him to keep him. Don't sell your seat to a tourist or give it to a mate.
