"Did I ever walk away?"

"(The lack of goals) certainly affects him (Lacazette) a little bit, but I am not anxious", Wenger said.

And Wenger is growing increasingly confident of having Ozil at the club next season and beyond. Wenger said, as quoted by the Guardian when asked about his contract situation. They are now sixth, five behind the Reds in fourth and face a hard January period where they try to keep hold of their stars and challenge for Europe.

But the France global, 26, has now gone almost 10 hours without finding the back of the net - he last scored in the 3-1 defeat against Manchester United at the beginning of December - and he was largely ineffectual in the Carabao Cup semi-final at Chelsea before he was substituted in the second half.

Malcom has attracted a host of Premier League clubs, including Manchester United, due to his ferocious style of play.

They are also into the round of 32 in the Europa League and that would provide a good route for the Gunners to make it to the Champions League like United did last season.

Sanchez's future has been a relentless source of speculation in recent months after both he and Mesut Ozil entered into the final few months of their contracts at Arsenal.

Wenger still maintains hope that he can hold on to the other two however.

"It looks like Sánchez will not extend his contract", Wenger said.

"But we want to keep Jack and if we have an opportunity maybe to keep Ozil, the rebuild will be less deep than if all the three left". There is still an opportunity for him to stay. We are more optimistic than the summer'.

Arsenal are sixth in the Premier League and are fighting on that front and in the Europa League for a Champions League spot next season. "Basically what can happen in the story of a game is that you can go through all kind of states of mind - the nightmare, the relief and then the frustration - because we could have won the game in the end".
