  • Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar is still being chased by Arsenal

The forward made it clear he wanted to leave Arsenal this summer, but a deadline-day move to Manchester City fell apart in the final hours of the transfer window.

Welbeck also set up Alexandre Lacazette's goal as anxieties around Arsenal were eased after back-to-back losses before the two-week break for World Cup qualifiers. One day it would be a good chat to have with the press to look at the evolution.

However in spite of the fact that he had achieved massive success at all the clubs that he has managed till date.

"Do I want to get rid of Financial Fair Play? The best way to get them on your side is to perform".

"No [I was not tempted to move], because I was always happy here".

The Bournemouth goalkeeper was in for a busy afternoon and he had to push away a Mesut Ozil free-kick as the game was being played almost exclusively in the visitors' half.

Eddie Howe's side are only off the bottom of the Premier League on goal difference and have lost their opening four games in a season for only the third time.

The win moved Arsenal to ninth on six points in the league table.

Arsenal saw the game out with relative ease, Petr Cech saving a late Joshua King header aside, to pick up their second win of the season having been on top for much of the contest.

He claimed the French boss was the unanimous choice to succeed Ferguson when the Scot first toyed with retirement in 2002, and secretly met with Wenger twice to discuss the possibility.

Wenger admits Sanchez is not at his physical peak but insists he is still in good shape, while shooting down claims that he is not committed to the Gunners.

The 28-year-old was booed on his return as he entered the fray with 15 minutes left, coming on for Olivier Giroud. Hopefully, he will stay in that position for the next few games.

As reported by Goal, a deal between the Premier League rivals had been agreed, although the north Londoners' failure to secure a suitable replacement meant the transfer did not go through in the end.
