Liverpool crush Arsenal, Zlatan misfires for United

Wenger denied that a training ground feud was the reason for Sanchez's omission from the Gunners' starting line-up at Liverpool on Saturday, but conceded the Chile playmaker was prone to "excessive behaviours".

Arsenal lost against Liverpool in the Premier League at the weekend. It lifted Juergen Klopp's team into third place in the fight to reach the Champions League.

On numerous occasions this season Sanchez has cut a frustrated figure on the pitch around his team-mates and, with the Chilean's contract due to expire at the end of next season, it seems increasingly likely that Arsenal's leading scorer and assist provider will leave the club in the summer.

That said, if the decision was purely tactical like Arsene Wenger said, then it was the wrong decision.

The race for England's top four looks set for a spectacular climax, with second and seventh still only separated by nine points.

Wenger said he had no regrets.

Alexis Sanchez now takes home a wage packet of £130,000 per week at Arsenal and Foottheball sources reveal that the Gunners bosses have offered him a new deal worth an extra £50,000 a week.

'I don't believe Arsene Wenger for a minute but I totally understand why a manager would say that to protect the player and to protect the club, ' he said.

Lightning acquire defenceman Mark Streit from Flyers for centre Filppula
But Streit's contract ($5.25 million) is running out and Filppula's ($5 million) still has another year left. The 39-year-old Streit has spent four years with the Flyers, the last three as an alternate captain.

"But you are right, we didn't make any chances, and we didn't make enough of our corners".

What was bad in the first half was the collective performance. He collected Wijnaldum's inside pass, turned Francis Coquelin and opted against shooting to slide a pass across to the unmarked Mane, who lashed in a low angled drive. "We've had a shot, we've had a shot", Arsenal fans sang sarcastically when Granit Xhaka managed to drill a shot over the crossbar.

Sanchez's introduction at halftime completely changed the game.

The reports of splits in the camp come with Arsenal in trouble on the field. He showed great vision by playing a ball through for Welbeck, who chipped over advancing goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

And the bold tactic backfired spectacularly as the home side raced into a two-goal lead in the first half itself and could easily have had a couple more, such was their dominance.

Arsenal have failed to beat Liverpool at Anfield in their past three attempts, and they know they require all three points if they wish to keep their Premier League dream alive.

Key to improved results since the start of 2017 have been Edinson Cavani's continued good form in front of goal, Angel Di Maria's rejuvenation, the January signing of Julian Draxler and the fact that Lucas Moura is - statistically speaking - having the best season of his career.

Emre Can escaped a second yellow card for a foul on Walcott, with Granit Xhaka booked for complaining the German should have been sent off.
