Read some extra quotes from Arsène Wenger's pre-match press conference. For more headlines, visit our Digest page.

on two managers being sacked…
That’s shows you how quickly our life changes.

on one club’s sacking setting the tone for other clubs…
It’s true that sometimes it goes in numbers at the same time. You have enough experience and I have as well to know that Christmas is always a sensitive period because people reflect, sit together in their families, talk - they say, ‘you should do this, you should do that’. It’s always a very sensitive period for the managers because you have half the season to go, it’s a moment where people are scared to go down sometimes and that’s why everything’s happened.

on Coquelin’s return…
I believe he has the potential but he has played one game, so it is a bit early to judge that. He will make a career and hopefully he will make it here. I want to give him credit because he kept his work rate and focus in training at a very high level when he didn’t play. Then he went to Charlton and had a very good spell there as well.
