Arsene Wenger: Has warned Arsenal against slip-ups

The Gunners remain four points adrift of arch-rivals Tottenham, who are in the all-important fourth place in the Premier League, following Saturday's 1-0 win at Sunderland.

They wasted chances to win more comfortably at the Stadium of Light, but Wenger admitted afterwards that the three points were all that mattered as Arsenal look to extend their 16-year run in the Champions League.

He said: "We were under pressure to win, and of course we could not afford to drop points.

"I said that after the Chelsea game, we are in a situation where we cannot drop points any more. No matter where we play, we need the three points."

Looking back at the Sunderland game, Wenger added: "We lacked efficiency in our finishing, we didn't finish what we created. But we create, and that's positive.

"Sometimes, it's like that. If you look at our games, we score five, seven and suddenly sometimes none, because maybe this team is developing and learning and needs to be a bit more efficient."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
