Arsene Wenger's response when asked whether Arsenal will finish in top four

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp still plans to make changes to his squad in the off-season despite his side's win over Arsenal.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger's surprise decision to drop star player Alexis Sanchez backfired as Liverpool won 3-1 in the English Premier League to reignite its ambitions of Champions League qualification on Saturday.

Wenger has previously insisted Sanchez would not be allowed to leave this summer under any circumstances but that declaration was made before a series of training ground incidents that are believed to have bemused many of his team-mates.

Arsenal's capitulation in Munich, together with Premier League losses to Watford, Chelsea and Liverpool in their last four Premier League games have stretched the patience of even Wenger's most loyal disciples to breaking point.

"You do not make this kind of decision focusing on one result or two bad results", the 67-year-old told the media ahead of the Bayern game.

It is quite obvious that Sanchez deserves a better place, where he can win trophies and find like-minded players who can encourage him to produce his best form, time-in and time-out.

That was also the match when Wenger left Sanchez on the bench, before bringing Arsenal's top scorer on in the second half.

Sanchez is Arsenal's best player by a country mile and you can not afford to leave out your match winners for the most important games. There is a lack of effort, motivation and dare I even say it, but for some players, perhaps a lack of desire to play under Wenger.

"I haven't come to a decision yet". And I don't deny that Alexis is a great player.

Asked on BT Sport if he felt the decision not to play Sanchez from the start had backfired on him, Wenger said: "Yes, but I felt as well that the strikers suffered from the fact that we didn't dominate the midfield". In the 2003-04 season, when he was coach of AC Milan, his team took a 4-1 lead over Deportivo La Coruna in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal - played at home.

The impact was that Arsenal were poor in the first half and improved when Sánchez came on.

And, in Jose Mourinho, he has a manager who knows how to work with young players and more importantly, protect them from critics.

"Development generally is inconsistent and until we are the team we want to be - then you will be consistent".
