Arsene Wenger on the reason he took off Nacho Monreal

He has a kick on the back of the hamstring. It was precautionary.

On the win

We started well, played well. Played the football we know we can play. We had a convincing first half. The second half was less quality. Overall it was a convincing win.

On Alexis Sanchez going to Manchester United

I expect it to happen, but I can’t announce it. In the next 48 hours it will be decided. Until it’s over the line you can’y say it will happen. If you want to have a bit, it could happen.

On bidding for Aubameyang

No comment on that.

When pressed on Aubameyang and Dortmund labelling him ‘disrespectful’

I don’t know what I said, I said nothing happens and I can’t comment on it, so I am quite surprised. It looks to be a tactical reaction rather than anything else because I didn’t say anything.

They [Dortmund] are responsible for their own statements. I can’t stand up for what they say. If we sign someone we will announce it.

I half announce today Sanchez/Mkhitaryan because it’s likely to happen. The rest, we are not close at all to anything
