'I'm not Pochettino' - Wenger refuses to give up on Arsenal's title chances

Arsene Wenger has batted away Jose Mourinho's barbed claim that the Arsenal manager was guilty of being economical with the truth about the fitness of Alexandre Lacazette at the weekend.

Arsenal had 33 shots against United, but De Gea made an incredible 14 saves to deny Wenger's team.

"I thought he wouldn't play but in the end he could", said the Arsenal boss.

"That's what you want, the players have produced a quality performance". No stories of Lacazette [or] Silva.

"I don't think they can, I think that's pretty obvious".

"I am not Pochettino, I am Arsene Wenger", said the Frenchman.

Lacazette, who cost £52m from Lyon in the summer, is not likely to start tomorrow as Wenger plays fringe men in cup games.

But after a poor end to the year that saw her slip down to ninth in the world rankings, she split with Fissette. Sharapova won the US Open and the Australian Open and became world number one while being coached by Joyce.

"He had tests on Friday morning and we thought he wouldn't play".

Wenger has opted to play the youngsters in the Europa League and refused to sell either Mesut Ozil or Alexis Sanchez in the summer to try and push for the title.

"I believe the game, it has to make us angry and even more determined", he said.

"They are probably out of the title picture, but anything can happen - in 1998, we were 12 points behind in February and pulled that back".

Wenger also warned the injury-plagued Wilshere to be careful when ice skating after pictures emerged of the midfielder with his family at a rink earlier in the week.

"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".
