Arsene Wenger unsure of Arsenal future

"We want to keep players like Alexis and all the speculations can happen".

Wenger is furious that he did not receive more public backing during the hard campaign and thinks the top brass at the club should have put an end to uncertainty around his future. Apart from Chelsea, all of the other sides have had their ups and downs this season, but if you were to hand Liverpool fourth spot at the start of the season, they'd surely have taken it.

Per Cross, Arsenal have offered Sanchez a deal worth in excess of £250,000 a week in an attempt to get him to commit to the club, but they are now on the back foot having failed to qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League.

The BBC pundit, who played for both the clubs, has pointed out that Liverpool pay a better salary to their players than Spurs do.

But the Frenchman believes Arsenal's board should bear the brunt of the criticism for this season's failings.

"Personally the biggest thing for us at City was winning the FA Cup - getting that first trophy under our belt, winning something, giving you that belief", The Independent quotes Milner as saying. But playing in those sort of occasions and in those big games is important.

That hasn't all been down to the extra effort of Champions League football, but they did spend the pre-Christmas portion of the season fielding weaker sides in the league whilst resting bigger names for the Champions League.

"There is still a lot of room for improvement and hopefully we can continue that in the Champions League next season".

But probably the most worrying stat for Liverpool is the number of players Jurgen Klopp has used this year. Previous year there was good and bad. If you have a top player who wants to come to London and at Arsenal he is being offered say 100 grand and at another club it's 200 grand, where is he going to go?
