on a possible tube strike on Monday…
It affects the game of course [because] it affects the people that want to go to the game. Be cautious, come earlier if you can - because many people work. I don't know if it will affect the attendance or not.

on talks with Bacary Sagna...
At the moment they are not progressing. We know what we want from him, he knows what is on the table and that's where we are. The ball is not in our camp anymore, it is in his camp, and he needs to come back to us.

on Arteta losing his tooth at Hull…
He got it back, in fact he looks better now! I like Mikel Arteta because of his quality, his focus, his commitment and his winner's attitude. I have big respect for what he has achieved this season. He is very conscientious, very professional and he has a couple of years left [at the top].
