  • Chelsea and Man Utd are ready to battle for Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld

"It's my day off tomorrow and I'll go to London".

But a late-season stumble by Liverpool in the league, with their minds very much focused on reaching the Champions League final this week, has rekindled hopes for the Blues. He has a big match waiting for him.

"The ideal season would have been the league - we didn't manage that".

Arsenal manager is disappointed his young team failed to take the chances they created in Sunday's English Premier League game against Manchester United.

Arsenal are now preparing for the return leg of their Europa League semi-final clash against Atletico Madrid in Spain on Thursday night. Asked about his ovation as he walked along the touchline, Wenger said: "When you're not a danger any more, people love you".

They defended poorly for both of United's goals in the defeat.

"Certainly, my successor will watch this game today and hopefully he will come to a positive conclusion for the players because I think for them it is (a case of) can they be part of the future of Arsenal Football Club?" It was very classy from them.

Gary Lineker highlights incredible Arsenal fact after loss to Man United

"It would mean more for Sir Alex to do it".

There were many question marks if we would be strong enough to fight, but the quality was good, the spirit was good, many players stood up. However, the first goal arrived for United in the 16th minute.

Romelu Lukaku picked out Sanchez at the back-post, and after his header was deflected on to his own post by Hector Bellerin, Pogba had the simple task of tapping into an unguarded net.

Wenger included club record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan, who was the makeweight for Sanchez to move in the other direction, among a side littered with youngsters. After Granit Xhaka won the ball in midfield, freeing Mkhitaryan down the right, the winger arrowed a low shot past goalkeeper David De Gea into the bottom corner. The Chilean admitted that he was happy with the win, but that Man United must improve in order to win titles next season.

Fellaini - whose elapsing contract situation is yet to be resolved - glanced a header off the bar with the rebound ricocheting in off Marcus Rashford's pelvis, but an intervention from the assistant referee saw the effort chalked off for an offside in the build-up.

City aren't finished yet, needing two goals and three points from their three remaining games to break the Premier League single-season goal and points records, which are now held by Chelsea.
