Unless something unbelievable happens, I can't see why that would change. "Yes, I rule it out", Wenger said at his prematch press conference when asked about potential departures.

Arsene Wenger has given many team-talks in his time at Arsenal, but this one was definitely one to remember! As far as I'm concerned, they'll stay until the end of the season unless something unbelievable happens.

Both Sanchez and Ozil are free to negotiate with new clubs in January as their Arsenal contracts expire in June. For him I always consider his interest because he's an Arsenal player since he was a kid and I think about what's best for him, regardless of the decision I make.

"For me, they stay until the end of the season". That's impossible to answer today.

"We have a good chance tomorrow to take three points at home and that is the only thing that matters", he said.

Also speaking ahead of Wednesday's clash against newly promoted Huddersfield Town, Wenger said: "Iwobi got a dead leg, we are not sure he will be available".

They then host Manchester United on Saturday, a fixture on which Wenger said he now has "zero eyes".

Meanwhile, Sanchez is expected to join Manchester City - whether in January or next summer.

The England midfielder's career looked to be over after being loaned out to Bournemouth last season, however after some positive displays in the Europa League some Gunners fans have called for him to be recalled to the first team for the Premier League. "But they have a contract until the end of the season". So when you play them you have to be ready for a fight.
