Arsene Wenger is refusing to let Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez leave the club unless he has a suitable replacement lined up for the player. This is despite the fact that Premier League rivals Manchester City have been strongly linked with a move for the forward in the January transfer window.

Arsenal face a very tough test in the form of Chelsea this evening as they look to put one foot in the final of the Carabao Cup.
