Koscielny questions Wenger’s team selection against Chelsea
Arsenal were comprehensively beaten 3-1 by Chelsea on Saturday and the Gunners could surely have no complaints whatsoever regarding the final result.
In truth, Arsenal did not put up much of a fight during the clash and manager Arsene Wenger has come under a lot of criticism for how he set up the Gunners’ starting lineup on the day.
Now reports from the Daily Mirror suggest that even star defender Laurent Koscienly has questioned Wenger’s tactics for the encounter, with the Frenchman stating that Arsenal should have been better equipped to deal with Chelsea’s threat on the counter.
Koscielny said, “I think we played some players in front of others and I think we should have played more as a team and there was space to do so. They hit us on the counter.
“It will be difficult now. Mathematically, nothing is done but we know that it is going to be very complicated. We need to come back to the quality of our game, our passing, movement.”
Sanchez will wait till the end of the season to decide his future
The future of Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal remains in doubt as the Chilean star has not yet signed an extension to his current deal at the Emirates Stadium and French giants Paris Saint-Germain are currently said to be monitoring the Chilean star very closely.
In revelations from Get French Football, claims have been made that Sanchez will wait till the end of the current campaign to decide his future and will make his decision based on what position Arsenal finish in the Premier League this season.
Redknapp believes Wenger should leave
Following Arsenal’s disappointing 3-1 defeat at the hands of Chelsea on Saturday, many feel that the Gunners stand no chance of claiming the Premier League title and in turn, manager Arsene Wenger has found himself coming under real pressure from disgruntled fans once again.
Ex-Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has recently stated that it may finally be time for Wenger to leave his post as manager of Arsenal and is hopeful that the frustrated supporters do not hound him out of the Emirates Stadium.
Redknapp told BT Sport, “He has been a fantastic manager over the years for the job he has done at Arsenal. Maybe it is time for a change, if they don't win the league - well they won't win the league this year - maybe Arsene will look at it and think 'I've done an incredible job while I've been here' and leave while he's still where he is [up here]. I would hate to see him get hounded out of there."
