Injury won't impact Wilshere's Arsenal future, says Wenger

21 April 2017

The uncharacteristic, sweeping tactic changes that he made for the 2-1 win over Middlesbrough are now the centre of the discussion, with some quandering if Wenger will persist with the system moving forward. "Nothing's been concluded with anybody".

Wenger is certainly no stranger to FA Cups and semi-finals; this will be his 12th one.

Inconsistent performances and dismal results throughout 2017 have prompted protests against Wenger signing a new deal but the man himself says that a loss at Wembley on Sunday wouldn't affect any potential decision.

"I didn't tell anything to anybody".

However, reports surfaced last week that indicated Kolasinac had agreed a pre-contractual agreement with Arsenal that would see the 23-year-old move to the Premier League this summer- although his father has now revealed those reports were premature.

"It doesn't play any part". Arsenal will have to beat Manchester City and either Chelsea or Tottenham to win a third FA Cup in four seasons and it therefore raises the issue again of whether the Gunners can thrive against English football's elite.

"So of course we are all fully focused on that".

Wenger admits that confidence is still low within the squad but he insists that the players believe in their chances of reaching the FA Cup final for the third time in four years.

"What I expect when you go into a semi-final is to go to the final". "I remember my first, when we played at Villa Park against Wolves". That's the day when I realised how big the club is, how much it means to our supporters. It's a special experience.

The Gunners are 3/1 outsiders to win the tie but can take comfort from the fact that they have pushed City all the way on the two occasions the teams have met this season. We do as well.

Aguero has 11 goals in his last 11 games, and could put a shaky Arsenal defence to the sword here.

"I think it's a very simple fracture of the fibula and that we need patience, and let's hope that all goes well".
