"But will they make as many points?"

"It is as simple as that".

"I would have loved to play in the Champions League, but we have to deal with the reality that we are not in it", Wenger told reporters on Thursday.

The Gunners boss is expected to play hard-ball with Sanchez as he does not want to lose his talisman to Premier League rivals Manchester City.

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has resigned himself to staying with Arsenal for another year and seeing out his contract, according to a report.

"For me, it is the effect of the ownerships and that has completely changed the whole landscape of football in the last 15 years", Wenger said at a news conference ahead of the Community Shield Sunday against arch-rivals Chelsea.

"Every negotiation has to be a little bit secret", Wenger said during a press conference.

And he continued to push for Chinese help to keep pressure on North Korea due to their special economic relationship. North Korean officials claimed Warmbier fell into a coma two months later due to botulism and a sleeping pill.

"We know we have a duty to inform people but to talk about some things is not information anymore, it's suicide".

A year ago was disappointing for Arsenal in the league - they came fifth - which Wenger put down to the negative attitude which he now admits was due to his own silence over his future.

But he did say that he expects Spanish striker Lucas Perez to leave after a frustrating debut season. And as poorly as last season went (besides an FA Cup), I can not wait to begin again with Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger added his criticisms to the pile, stating his belief that the Neymar deal is "beyond rationality" and "beyond calculation". When he goes on the football pitch, he wants to win. "I thought Wembley, with the pressure [might be too much for him], but when he came on I thought he was outstanding". Recently returned from an extended break, Sanchez is fit for the Chelsea showdown.

The defensive midfielder was a key member of Conte's team that won back the Premier League crown in their first season under the Italian coach last term.

Meanwhile The FA has confirmed that Sunday's Community Shield will kick off an hour earlier than scheduled to avoid a clash with the Women's European Championship final.
