Arsenal’s week in videos: Guardiola & Wenger on Sanchez, Palace defeat + more

Normal service has resumed in the Goonerverse after Arsenal lost 3-0 to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday.

The players have gone mute on social media and Arsene Wenger is back to looking dejected when he meets with the press.

After the loss to Palace, Wenger urged fans to get behind the team, despite the players looking as if they wanted to be anywhere else but on that pitch.

Ahead of the Gunners’ trip to Middlesbrough this coming Monday, Wenger looked a bit chirpier. The Frenchman even managed a cheeky smile when he was asked about Alexis Sanchez allegedly being offered a £300kpw contract by the club.

Elsewhere, Pep Guardiola was also asked about Alexis during his pre-Southampton presser. Manchester City have been linked with the Chilean this week with reports claiming the club’s confident of landing their man in the summer.

Over on Arsenal’s official YouTube channel, the club took us behind the scenes of the newly refurbished Arsenal Academy at Hale End.

Per Mertesacker spoke about winning the World Cup with Germany in 2014, revealing that during the final he wasn’t even nervous. He just wanted to do anything and everything he could to get to the final whistle.

And Rob Holding named his ultimate XI, which included Ashley Cole when he was at Arsenal, and Patrick Vieira.
