Don't blame me for Arsenal missing top 4 spot-Wenger

Don't blame me for Arsenal missing top 4 spot-Wenger

Arsene Wenger is facing a defensive crisis at Arsenal ahead of Saturday's FA Cup final against Chelsea at Wembley Stadium.

The 67-year-old Frenchman said the atmosphere at the club was a contributory factor in his side's failure to finish in the top four - which means they will play in the Europa League.

Wenger appeared to criticise the club's fans who have been split between those loyal to him and those who feel he should leave.

"We were playing in a hostile environment", he said. "The players came back stronger in the past two months and I'm very proud of them for doing that".

Jordan Henderson has explained that while a top four finish is a good achievement for Liverpool, he thinks the Reds have plenty of scope for improvement, such as winning silverware.

Palestinian president hopeful after talks with Trump
But according to former White House official Dennis Ross, Trump is in some ways helping Abbas by extending the White House invite. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is rooted in a dispute over land claimed by Jews and Palestinians, who seek self- determination.

City finished third with Liverpool fourth, while Spurs finished their season in style with a 7-1 win at relegated Hull. "I don't know why but that is what he is going to have to do", he told Sky Sports' Premier League Daily. It's alright saying you should be in the top four.

With the Reds having secured a Top 4 place, it is believed that certain clauses in his contract would make it more hard for him to leave and his transfer fee would certainly now be heftier.

Wenger said he did not know whether Kroenke had attended against Everton.

"I'm experienced enough to know you can not have 20,000 people on your side".

"Probably a question for the manager", was the player's response when asked whether he would continue in defence.

Bradley Beal adds another flop to his collection against the Celtics
The Wizards had approximately four players tonight: John Wall , Bradley Beal , Otto Porter Jr ., Markieff Morris, and that's it. Even though Wall has been superior statistically, it hasn't mattered as much to the results as Thomas' performance.

"They have got to be real with what's being paid to players".

"The club should be in the Champions League, it is where we believe we belong".

Everton playmaker Ross Barkley, who is stalling over a new contract, came off the bench to replace Tom Davies as part of a 26th-minute reshuffle by visiting manager Ronald Koeman.

On his ambitions for the close-season transfer window, Koeman said: "First of all we need more numbers in to be prepared for a long, tough season with different competitions. We have not to look there as an excuse but I just say it's a fact it doesn't help".

'A club works when everybody does their job and we live in a society where everybody has an opinion and what moves society forward is when we work and not talk too much'.
