Arsenal midfielder Wilshere confirms return 'in a couple of days'

Wenger opted to keep Sanchez on the bench until the last 25 minutes of Wednesday night's 0-0 first leg draw at Stamford Bridge. There was a thunderous soundtrack as the teams waited in the tunnel and in the stands the kind of carnival feel you often get for semi-finals, helped by the larger-than-usual away end. "I am pleased with the spirit and determination", Wenger said. One reform could be to automatically give home advantage to all teams from a lower division.

Likewise, the withdrawn wingbacks vastly reduced the amount of space they were forced to cover laterally.

"He is a superstar approaching the levels of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil but, crucially, he wants to play for Arsenal". But if prize money was hiked significantly, this could lead to a rethink.

Joshua King is out with a hamstring injury while winger Ryan Fraser also looks set to miss the game with the same issue.

"Of course, he is completely focused". Nobody puts Arsène in the corner. It's also worth remembering that last year, they came close to knocking out the eventual winners Arsenal. This is an Argentinian player with Boca Juniors and still only 21, and there is considerable interest from European clubs including Inter Milan, Manchester City, Liverpool and PSG, some in the past and some right now.

Midfielder Jack Wilshere has admitted that he was 'honoured' to captain Arsenal against Chelsea on Wednesday night before he was substituted through injury.

To Melbourne next, where the first tennis Grand Slam of the year- the Australian Open - starts on 15th January.

Iwobi has scored one goal in seventeen appearances this season and patience amongst the Arsenal fan base is beginning to wear thin. We have been distracted a little bit by the cups, but now we have to come back to the Premier League. Cheltenham though most definitely is. However, the former Arsenal midfielder headed straight at David Ospina in Arsenal goal.

The Road to Russia: Belgium.

"He goes to Valencia, he didn't get enough games". Chelsea were the more resolute team throughout the game.

The negative, from a statistical perspective are that they have never won a World Cup, nor indeed reached a World Cup final-and since 1958 there have only been four first-time winners. "In this transfer market it's very difficult".

He added: "Both are making good progress, are back on the training pitch, but I'll have to make a late decision".

Wenger can be assured that Ospina is a reliable replacement should Cech become unavailable further down the line.
