Wenger fires back at Mourinho over playing Lacazette against Manchester United

Instead, Lacazette was named in an Arsenal side that slipped to a first defeat at the Emirates Stadium since March and scored the consolation goal as Jose Mourinho's United left north London with all three points.

Mourinho sarcastically praised the Gunners' medical department after the match and returned to the same subject this week by suggesting reports that David Silva might be forced to miss the Manchester derby could be filed under L for Lacazette.

I'm always honest. I thought really he wouldn't play.

Arsenal have already secured a place in the knock out stages of the Europa League by topping their group and therefore, we can expect stars to be rested against BATE Borisov tomorrow night.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, he explained: 'I was going to take a touch but out of the corner of my eye I saw De Gea coming out, Lacazette was up there so I just knocked it back to him.

"Next week we go into a week with three games and so some players need competition, some experienced players. But he was fine and that's football". Then came the dig at Wenger over Lacazette.

Fellow Frenchman Olivier Giroud has found himself excluded from Premier League action, as has England's Theo Walcott.

The only player, apart from long-term absentee Santi Cazorla, who has is struggling with an injury is Shkodran Mustafi.

Thanks to Wenger's rotation policy, Arsenal players should be stronger and fresher, and we have hardly any injuries to contend with for a change. "One of the positives is that the behaviour of the squad is remarkable and impeccable".

The Gunners are at the start of the busiest period of the domestic season and have six more Premier League fixtures to play before the end of December. "Wonderful. I congratulate them all".

Arsenal have already won their group so Wenger can carry on blooding youngsters like Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Joe Willock.

"You can do ice skating by bringing your child on and just making sure nothing happens to him, or (you can do) ice skating violently, I don't think he did that".
