Arsene Wenger expects female manager in Premier League soon

Indeed, Arsenal needed a last minute Frank Sinclair own goal to come away with the spoils after they had trailed to Tony Cottee's opener.

"I can't tell you that at the moment", he said.

But, consigned to the Europa League after failing to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in 20 years, Walcott admits it won't be easy to change the perception that Arsenal have lost ground on their title rivals. Personally I think he is a hugely talented player, he's on the way up and he will continue to move up because the potential is there. We are up for the challenge, we do like a good challenge.

"When you are not completely in or the players feel you are not completely in, it is hard to tell them we go (out to win)". All that will do is turn the focus to January and how he will be able to talk to clubs outside the Premier League come the turn of the year.

Wenger, who re-iterated recent comments that the delay in confirming his future at the club last season was a mistake, also expressed a desire for Arsenal to look to the very top for his eventual replacement.

The link drawn between Wenger regarding the possibility of a female manager in the Premier League and managers who are not "football specialists" is an interesting one, but perhaps let's not dwell on what we're sure was a perfectly innocent segue. We are still learning it. Their start to the season won't be where things are determined however, with Christmas and New Year form key after their miserable run of games at that time of the year in 2016/17.

None more so than the performances of Kolasinac, whose goal capped a hugely impressive afternoon, and record signing Lacazette who showed enough to suggest he could be the lethal striker Arsenal have needed for so long.

Have you signed up to play fantasy football yet?

The 2017/18 Premier League season gets underway on Friday but already the body count is piling up at the Emirates Stadium with Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey already ruled out of the opening game against Leicester City.

'I can not say I am immune to criticism - everybody wants to be loved, everybody wants to be loved by the fans.
