Arsène Wenger admits he favoured the long ball over Alexis Sánchez

Asked further if the reports of unrest were untrue, Wenger added: "Yes, completely false, but I understand you have to fill the newspapers and we have to respect that".

The Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez joined the North London club in 2014 and has since proved his mettle with 62 goals to his name in 127 appearances - nearly scoring a goal in every other match.

When you've got your star man and you try and discipline him and you go to Liverpool which was a massive game for them and you leave him out. if you leave him out and Arsenal win you've got to go with that team. "All the rest, his attitude - he's a committed player and sometimes has excessive behaviours".

Meanwhile, the viral photo doing the rounds on Monday shows Wenger shaking hands with Sanchez during the training session.which is completely true! He was confronted by team-mates on their return to the changing room as tempers flared.

"A decision like that is not easy to make", Wenger said, "but you have to stand up for it".

Arsenal takes on Bayern Munich in the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 on Tuesday at the Emirates Stadium.

Alexis Sanchez has issued what appears to be a cryptic response to news of an increasingly likely Arsenal exit, insisting that "the only failure is not trying".

Reports had claimed that Wenger's patience with Sanchez had finally snapped last week. And that's perfectly fine and reasonable, but then Alexis should have started instead of Alex Iwobi or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain behind them, not on the bench.

Craig Burley can not wrap his head around why Alexis Sanchez would sign a new deal as Arsenal are trending backwards. The results: Premier League: Tottenham 3 (Kane 20, 56, Alli 90+2) bt Everton 2 (Lukaku 81, Valencia 90+3); Sunderland 0 lost to Manchester City 2 (Aguero 42, Sane 59).

The ramifications could be huge for Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp, whose future has been called into question after overseeing just two wins in his side's last 12 matches - with just one of them coming in the league.

"Our performance was not at the level we expect in the first half but that is down to a lack of rhythm, we have not played for a while", he said to the BBC. A happy perform on the football front is a player who comes out of a game and has won it and has performed well.

"Our performance was not at the level we expect in the first half but that is down to a lack of rhythm, we have not played for a while", said Wenger.

Wenger said the decision to leave his side's top scorer on the bench was "tactical", believing the pairing of Olivier Giroud and Welbeck would provide a direct approach more threatening to Liverpool's defence.
