Arsene Wenger was asked for his opinion on both matters at his pre-match press conference on Thursday. Here’s what he said:
- Team news: Who's back to face Liverpool?
- What can we expect from Liverpool?
- 'I'm especially sad for Santi Cazorla'
- 'My preference has always been Arsenal'
on whether Ozil will play at Liverpool…We’ll see. I don’t know. He should be OK.
on the sacking of Claudio Ranieri…I was like everybody else in football - surprised and disappointed. I take this opportunity to wish him well and congratulate him on what he has achieved with Leicester.
on where it leaves the Leicester fairytale…What will be remembered is what they achieved last year. What will happen to Leicester in the future? I don’t know. That’s in the players’ hands and they responded well against Liverpool. Overall, it’s very difficult to predict what will happen. They are in a fight to stay in the Premier League but I think they have enough quality to stay in the league.
More polls coming soon!
