Arsene Wenger and Arsenal faithfuls would be delighted with the fact that top-notch striker Alexis Sanchez has been left out of the Chile squad competing in January’s china cup.

This is an early Christmas gift for Wenger who is looking to keep his top man fit in other to mount a credible title challenge in January.

The 27-year-old Arsenal striker has been in fine form all seasons scoring an incredible 12 premier league goals and providing five assists. His performance so far is responsible for his team’s overall success, and it would be a huge setback should Sanchez be injured anytime soon.

Wenger who is aware of the busy premier league fixtures at this period of the season is looking to manage collateral damages by keeping all his players fit in other to mount a title challenge in January. This news would no doubt bring some relief to the Arsenal boss who harbors the fear that Sanchez could be injured should he be selected in the Chilean squad for the January’s china cup competition.

Coventry City coach threatens to quit

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray has threatened to resign from his post if the team doesn’t end their winless league run.

Mowbray has been in charge for 18 months, and after the draw played with AFC Wimbledon, Mowbray said: “I won’t be a burden to this club. I think I’m an honourable guy, and I won’t be around too long if we’re not winning. I won’t expect to be paid. I know this club needs every penny.”

After ten League One games, City are bottom of the log. The former Celtic coach took Coventry to the top of the League One just few months back, but fortunes have quickly changed. Mowbray took charge in March 2015 but after frustration in the summer transfer market, it seems he would take a walk. There have been continued protests from the club’s supporters against the club owners. Happenings are taking its toll on the players as only five goals have been scored in ten games. City have played six draws, and it seems the issues with the club would not end anytime soon.

John Carver confident that Club fans will Support

John Carver, the manager of Newcastle United, is quite confident that the fans of the club would remain quite supportive to the team at this testing time as they have always been.

Newcastle has been able to win just 2 out of the 9 games since Carver’s appointment at the manager’s post on an interim basis.

They had obviously not been performing well before that either and that’s why, Alan Pardew was removed.

But, with Carver coming in, there were some hopes that he would revive the team. However, there hasn’t been even the slightest of improvements.

According to Carver, he was never going to revive the team overnight. It’s just not possible as he does not have any stick of magic.

Speaking to the press post a crushing Everton defeat, Carver said, “I think north has the most knowledgeable fans, be it our fans or the fans of Everton. They know what the team is going through and that’s why, they have been very patient till now. I hope they show the same kind of patience in future as well because things would not change in the blink of an eye. There is no magician here. This is Football. We are trying our best.”
