Arsene Wenger aims subtle swipe at Joachim Low after Shkodran Mustafi's injury

Arsene Wenger aims subtle swipe at Joachim Low after Shkodran Mustafi's injury

The fact that we didn't find agreement a year ago doesn't mean he wants to leave.

"Both players look happy here and overall I hope that the situation can be turned around".

Win six out of six games in October and the pair may be tempted to extend their deals, but slip-ups against Watford, Everton or Swansea could just as easily nudge them closer to the exit door and stir up more interest from Europe's top clubs.

While Sanchez is yet to return from the climax of Chile's failed bid to qualify for the World Cup, Koscielny missed the worldwide break with an Achilles injury and is unlikely to figure. "I am more concerned that yesterday afternoon I watched the whole game Brazil against Chile to see how hard was the game and I must say he got some special treatment in this game. We will assess Sanchez when he comes back, I watched the Brazil game and he got some special treatment in that game".

Laurent Koscielny has been another injury worry of late with a recurrent Achilles problem, and Wenger confirmed that the centre-back will have a late fitness test, have recently stepped up individual training.

Chile star Alexis Sanchez is similar to Lionel Messi, Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham with his national team, according to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

"The player I expected to lose the least during the break was Mustafi", he opined. And after, I'll make sure everything is normal in my life. "I would say if we had to play we should not play after 2 p.m". We will check him today.

"It's a massive game, sure, tough game against a very good team", said Watford boss Marco Silva. He's a fantastic boy. We had other players in the team but it was Beckham. "The boy believes as well".
