Arsenal takes on rivals and league leaders Manchester United in a crucial game week 8 encounter on Sunday night, 4th October.

The Gunners are currently under great pressure as they are out of the top for the zone in the league table and have lost back to back games in the UEFA Champions League.

Ahead of the match against Manchester United, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger had addressed the media, he was unfortunately perturbed by media with annoying questions regarding David Ospina.

Speaking to the media, the Frenchman said: “I do not want to come back on that. I don’t change a word of what I said. I have two world-class goalkeepers.

“It’s the easiest choice I have to make, to pick one of those two.

“Look, stop that story, or we stop the press conference. I think you lack creativity in the media, and you follow a bandwagon that is very, very boring.

“If you question Ospina, I question your knowledge of football.”

He also informed that star defender Laurent Koscielny has been ruled for weeks. “Koscielny certainly out of Sunday,” he added.

Arsene Wenger was also questioned about opponents and rivals Manchester United, to which he replied: “The experience Van Gaal has in his career, it is no surprise Manchester United are doing well.

“At the moment it is tight and difficult to say who will dominate the championship. You can’t come to a conclusion yet.

“Man United have the money they’ve spent. It’s not artificial. It comes from their own resources. They have the right to do it.”

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger completed 19 years at the club yesterday. On that milestone Wenger stated:  “One day I will look back, but doesn’t seem time to do that today.”

On Francis Coquelin’s injury status, the boss said: “Looks like three weeks. Coquelin should be OK.”

Arsenal lost to Olympiakos this midweek in the UEFA Champions League and are currently at the bottom of the league. Arsenal needs to gear up quickly and escalate their performance in order to remain in the hunt for the title.
