Guardiola fans title talk after Arsenal draw

"It is just what you have to do to help them".

If Manchester City are seriously interested, and the claims of Guardiola meeting the player's agent are true, then it would be a surprise if Kolasinac were to sign for AC Milan instead.

Chelsea's Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard (R) shoots to scores their second goal during the English Premier League football match between Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in London on February 4, 2017.

Both teams made a change at the interval and City could have extended their lead when Aguero headed wide from a Jesus Navas cross from the right.

Wenger is well known not to get heavily involved in training and with Klopp and Guardiola renowned for their unique coaching and motivational methods, it has left some Arsenal players questioning the Frenchman's methods in relation to the effect it has on their levels of consistency. If the evidence of their disaffection wasn't clear a fortnight ago, it certainly is now. "But we will be better, we will improve in the future about that". Arsenal don't have the same attraction any more. Dull, restrained and surprisingly unambitious. And that is why they are not seriously challenging for the title this season. It is a long time since we won there. Who is the biggest club in London? His save percentage is outstanding, given the shambles that is in front of him, and he commands his box well too. Manchester City require a leader in defence and if Kompany can demonstrate his fitness, he'd be a large assist for the team between now as well as the conclusion of the season.

He said: "You can not imagine how good the young English players are". Guardiola's first season responsible for the team will probably be viewed as a disappointment by many, even though they manage to win the FA Cup. Pep to Alexis, see you in summer. Chelsea are no exception. Xabi Alonso went to Liverpool, the people stayed there, Cesc arrived at Arsenal.

Antonio Conte's Blues will look to bounce back from their surprise home defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace.

And finally, the creme de la creme - a new forward to play behind Diego Costa and alongside Eden Hazard. "But of course, if Monreal said it".

Arsenal host West Brom on Wednesday, April 5 in one of their outstanding games.

And a forward line of Hazard, Sanchez, Willian or Pedro and Costa....
