"I think when it doesn't go well these things are interpreted negatively", Wenger said. It's a team sport and the most important thing is that we focus on our collective.

Ducker writes that Pep Guardiola considers Sanchez as a far more complete player than the one he coached at Barcelona, and that City believe he will come much cheaper than their other transfer targets due to the Chilean's expiring contract.
