Wenger on Alexis, Tottenham, Eddie Jones

Read extra quotes from Arsene Wenger’s press conference ahead of Sunday’s game against Manchester City:

on whether Wilshere could face City…I haven’t decided yet, I don’t know.

on finishing second…No, we have not given up hope. We will fight until the end.

on if finishing above Spurs is a source of pride to him…Look, it’s not over. Let’s see what happens until the end of the season. Tottenham had a good season. They didn’t manage to finish very strongly recently but overall they’ve had a good season and they have a strong team. But our target is still to get in front of them if possible.


on if Spurs finishing above Arsenal would be a one off…If they do that, you can at least say it’s a one off, because in 20 years, it [will have] happened once. At the moment it’s not done. If they do it, well done. We’ll fight until the end to make sure that we have a chance that we get in front of them.

on if he can believe there’s another Copa America…No. I think last year was the century, so they made a special one [with special rules].

on if Copa America will have impact on Alexis…It had an impact on him this season I think. Of course Chile won it as well, so after some big achievement like that you always have a bit of decompression. I think he suffered physically this season from that.

on having Eddie Jones at London Colney…We have some common memories. His mother is Japanese, he worked in Japan and I worked in Japan so we spoke a little bit about Japan. We have had a similar career, he is Australian and I am French and you have to love countries like Japan and England because he worked in both.

on whether Arsenal are missing an out-and-out goalscorer…We have spoken about that before but at the moment we are just focused on this game on Sunday and trying to give everything to win it.
