Arsene Wenger hits back at Jose Mourinho dig over Alexandre Lacazette injury

Arsene Wenger has responded Jose Mourinho's jibe that he was dishonest over Alexandre Lacazette's fitness before Arsenal's game against Manchester United last weekend. Lacazette played all 90 minutes and scored his side's goal in a 3-1 defeat.

When these comments were put to Wenger at his briefing to preview Arsenal's match with BATE in the Europa League, he was relaxed in standing by his initial version of events. "What did you want me to do?"

"Matic is injured but will play for sure, I'm telling the truth but he will play for sure", Mourinho declared towards the end of a lengthy injury update.

That led to Mourinho questioning "the truth" over Lacazette, while the Portuguese coach also brought up David Silva's fitness - with Pep Guardiola naming him as a doubt for Sunday's Manchester derby.

"I'm always honest. I thought really he wouldn't play". Leave him at home?

"I am not here to especially blame people", Wenger added.

The boss feels that his anger and that of the Arsenal players at getting nothing for such an impressive and dominant display could be used to spur us on to success in the coming weeks and months.

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

Fellow Frenchman Olivier Giroud has found himself excluded from Premier League action, as has England's Theo Walcott. Indeed, only defender Shkodran Mustafi has been ruled out having picked up a minor thigh injury at the weekend. But I have to say that my players deserve all the great words.

A damaging defeat to a direct rival in Manchester United saw us slip back out of the top four with Liverpool winning to go back above us and the top three all picking up another three points.

"If I am a player, and I think with what we produced, we have a huge potential, and we lose the game, we can not accept that". We go to direct knockout now.
