Michail Antonio's West Ham contract talks at a standstill

Apr 05, 2017, 01:36

While the top four hopes may be waning for Arsenal, they still have to try to finish as high as possible in the table.

Koscielny had to come off at half-time of Arsenal's 2-2 draw with Manchester City on Sunday after the recurrence of an Achilles injury that has kept him sidelined several times in the past. Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlain face reassessment, being out due to that damned interlull.

Arsenal have not registered a victory in the English Premier League since their victory over Hull at the start of February, losing twice and drawing 2-2 against Man City since then.

Calls for Wenger to end his 20-year role have grown louder after Arsenal crashed out of the Champions League in the last-16 for a seventh straight season and lost four of their last five league matches to slide down to sixth.

West Ham's recent history of transfer dealings doesn't exactly read like the work of a shrewd financial genius.

There have been four hat-tricks in Premier League meetings between these sides - Arsenal vs Liverpool is the only fixture to see more in the competition (5).

"We saw a few things and they have their problems but they are still a team with a lot of pace and you can't afford to lose the ball to them in your half".

Michail Antonio is to be offered a pay rise as a reward for his outstanding performances this season, West Ham manager Slaven Bilic said on Tuesday.

"It's a good challenge", Wenger told press ahead of West Ham's visit to the Emirates on Wednesday.

Andy Carroll, the English forward, remains a threat for Arsenal.

"But that decision will rest with Arsenal, with Jack, with other people: it's out of our hands".

"Diafra is back. When you talk to him, he is ready, he can't wait".

Antonio has been arguably the Hammers' most impressive player so far this season, scoring nine goals and contributing a further three assists in 27 Premier League appearances. Within hours of the result, the West Ham board had issued a statement declaring "100 per cent faith" in the Croat.

He is also not expected to play on Saturday against Swansea City.
