Alexandre Lacazette fears Arsenal players could leave following Arsene Wenger's departure

As for Manchester United, Jose Mourinho appears to have got his team playing well at an ideal point in the campaign.

All the live action is on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League 4.15pm.

Now with Arsene Wenger announcing he will be leaving Arsenal after 22 years at the club, the curtain will eventually have to be drawn on this mammoth fixture.

Jose cited Jupp Heynckes, the 72-year-old Bayern Munich head coach who came back from retirement to lead his side to this year's Bundesliga title and the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, as an example of a manager who has improved with experience.

Manchester United: After their excellent win over Spurs, Mourinho is likely to stick with the same team.

There's always an edge to Arsenal-United clashes despite the fact the pair haven't been fighting for titles as regularly in recent seasons.

The Gunners boss has enjoyed some of his most iconic Premier League moments at the stadium, including numerous battles with legendary Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson.


The result brought an end the Arsenal's monumental "Invincibles" run as they were one game away from making it 50 Premier League matches without defeat.

"We are focused on the Europa League, so maybe this will not be the same game as it has been in the past years". And in addition to Arsenal (2006), there were other runners-up finishes for English clubs in this time as well - Liverpool (2007), Chelsea (2008), United (2009 and 2011) - along with numerous semi-final finishes.

'I saw him before I signed and we talked for a long time because it was a big decision to change my life.

The report claims that, should he accept the deal, Wenger would take home more than the annual salary of Marcello Lippi, the manager of China's national team.

Lacazette says the Gunners players are desperate to give Wenger a good send-off, and have the added motivation of knowing that they have to impress the new manager looking on - whoever he turns out to be.

And yet, in a continued spate of irony, Wenger's third and final era has overlapped with United's continued struggles, and Arsenal winning three FA Cup trophies in four years. Arsenal's transition is only starting now, and it may take years to succeed; Sanchez didn't have time to wait for them.
