Mourinho: Alexis Sanchez is going to be great for Man United

Paul Pogba has demanded his Manchester United team-mates continue to demonstrate their mental strength against Arsenal on Sunday. They had a quick, powerful team with big lads like Patrick Vieira, Sol Campbell, Edu, Pascal Cygan, and, at Highbury especially, you were aware just how small the pitch was when you were up against big players.

But Wenger once again, surprised his critics as he took only a handful of fringe players to Old Trafford after deciding to rest the likes of Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Alexandre Lacazette, Jack Wilshere and a host of others.

The quandary for Bellerin will be to reel in his electric dashed down the United left, keeping Sanchez as his bedfellow for the majority of the 90 minutes at Old Trafford.

And now he has dropped a fantastic bombshell by revealing he once held talks with Manchester United about taking over as manager when Alex Ferguson was set to retire. Goalkeeper Sergio Romero however, is out with a knee problem.

Pogba has been under the spotlight in recent weeks after some below-par performances earlier in 2018.

As documented, Wenger may elect to name a modified side from that that drew 1-1 against Los Coloncheros on Thursday night - despite this being a top-six clash.

Some antidepressants and bladder drugs linked to dementia risk in study
It could be that these medications are being prescribed for very early symptoms indicating the onset of dementia. Experts emphasise that patients should not stop taking the drugs, as their benefits may outweigh any risk.

Foremost among those will be Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's return to the starting XI, the striker available after missing out the Europa League games due to being cup-tied in Europe after already representing Borussia Dortmund.

Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny has made a rapid recovery from the ankle injury that appeared to have ended his season and is already back in first-team training.

One of Arsene Wenger's darkest moments in charge of Arsenal, and at a time when some of the Gunners' fanbase really started to question the leadership and authority of a man who had given them so many sensational triumphs in English football.

Sanchez could indeed be the "X" factor this weekend, and it will be interest to note what sort of reaction he gives should he find the net.

The result brought an end the Arsenal's monumental "Invincibles" run as they were one game away from making it 50 Premier League matches without defeat.
