Wenger fires back at Mourinho over playing Lacazette against Manchester United

Wenger fires back at Mourinho over playing Lacazette against Manchester United

United manager Mourinho made a pointed jibe towards Wenger when asked about his team news ahead of Sunday's derby against early Premier League pace-setters Manchester City.

"I'm telling the truth, he's injured but will play for sure. I don't think he did that". In the end, he could play. "What did you want me to do, to leave him at home?" he replied. We speak about players being happy or not happy, that is a real pain because it is really, really sad but unfortunately he has to start again from zero.

Arsenal's best performance of the Europa League group stage so far came against BATE in the 4-2 win in Belarus in September so perhaps we'll be in for a bit more entertainment tonight. Wenger said of Lacazette.

"If not Southampton, it will be West Ham [next Wednesday]", he said.

The Gunners boss has stuck to fielding different teams in the Premier League and Europa League, with the likes of Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere being limited to European competition. "But in training he looks very sharp and I'm sure he'll show that tomorrow".

"They have to make their decisions, I have to make mine", Wenger said of worldwide managers.

"It is not ideal for your balance, the way you fall down, for a footballer it's not great", said the Frenchman.

Wenger claimed last month that Cazorla's injury is the worst he has ever seen.

Now, following his ninth trip to the operating theatre, the Arsenal boss has given an update on his midfielder's future.

With domestic fixtures now coming thick and fast over the festive period, this could be the time of year when that becomes an advantage for Arsenal.

On Thursday, however, they play host to a BATE Borisov side who need to pick up three points to keep alive their hopes of reaching the round of 32. "But we are in a position where we have to take the month of December in a very serious way, be efficient and hopefully we can benefit from that".
