  • ARSE-NO

    Arsene Wenger was speaking at a charity event recently and ruled out a return to the Emirates.

    There had been talk of a comeback for the long-standing French boss after their recent struggles.

    But Wenger reportedly said: “I've given my life, my brain and my heart to the football club. Arsenal don’t need my brain anymore, they don’t need my body anymore.

    “My heart is still there so, I just keep suffering. Every time we don’t do well, I suffer.”

  • MOVING ON

    So it's a quiet weekend for Arsenal with no game scheduled.

    Mikel Arteta spoke of the desire to bounce back quickly after Thursday's European nightmare but with no Premier League game this weekend, the Gunners have to wait until Monday's FA Cup clash at Portsmouth. 

  • “I hope we will never have to go in this direction.

    “It will be difficult in any case to make a global ban because the situation is really different in many parts of the world.

    “But health of people is much more important than any football game and that’s why we have to look at the situation and hope that it will decrease rather than increase.
