Ray Parlour urges Arsene Wenger to sign Alexis Sanchez

Ray Parlour urges Arsene Wenger to sign Alexis Sanchez

Arsene Wenger's team are three points behind fourth placed Manchester City and four adrift of third placed Liverpool, who have played a game more than their top four rivals. "We are mathematically outsiders but you never know", he said.

"They play the way they want to play, so if teams of Tony Pulis want to play that way, perfect".

Arsenal were runners-up to surprise champions Leicester last season but could end this campaign outside the top four despite the prospect of collecting more points than 12 months ago.

"To look into the mirror and say you did it properly is vital". We have 69 points today - let's make it 72 on Tuesday [when Arsenal host Sunderland], and after that I will give my best as long as I am here for the values of this club. After that, "Gunners" have won five of six meetings in the Premier League and reached the League Cup final.

"You will always have regrets because you could have one point more but you forget as well the games you won in the last season where you could the season after not win".

During Saturday's match there was some delightful play from Arsenal, not least when Alexis Sanchez combined with Mesut Ozil - two players with uncertain futures - as the latter put the Gunners 2-0 up.

A statement on onlinegooner.com asked fans not to turn up for the mid-week game against the Sunderland: "We are calling on fans that feel the same way to boycott tomorrow evening's match".

Arsenal kept the pressure on Man City and Liverpool for the remaining Champions League spots with a 4-1 victory at Stoke.

"We can only influence our own behaviour and take care of ourselves, not judge too much the others. We managed to get one back and were on top for a bit but they caught us with a sucker punch and from then on we couldn't recover", said Berahino.

"We showed a bit of character to stay in the game when they had seven corners in a row".

Alexis Sánchez faces a fitness test on his injured thigh and there are also concerns over the defender Laurent Koscielny's calf injury that caused him to miss the victory against Southampton last week.
