Alexandre Lacazette will miss Manchester United clash, confirms Arsene Wenger

That run includes three draws and four defeats, with just one goal scored by United, leading to claims Mourinho's only objective in the big games is to defend.

The pair have shared a tumultuous relationship over the years but Wenger does not believe Mourinho, renowned for his defensive tactics in such matches, will only be eyeing a clean sheet in north London this weekend.

"For him, I've repeated it many times, it's just about being fit".

"As long as they are here, they give their best for the club". They will attack as well.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright was especially nervous with increasing speculation of Oezil joining Premier League rivals Man United on a free transfer after this season. I just want to focus and to prepare well my team, and give my team a good chance to win the game.

The Terriers' last away win against Arsenal came back in November 1954, winning 5-3.

Chelsea are ready to battle it out with Manchester United over the signing of Arsenal contract rebel Mesut Ozil either in January or next summer, according to a report by TeamTalk.

"Lacazette has a groin problem and will certainly be out for Saturday's game", Wenger told the Arsenal website after the full-time whistle. "Look, I do not think every day about that".

Wenger also spoke about the future of Jack Wilshere, who has also been linked with a move after failing to nail down a regular first team place this season. "They have a part to play in that as well but, if it is my decision, yes". For him, I always considered his interest because for me he's an Arsenal player and has been since he was a kid.
