Under-fire Wenger finds a friend in Guardiola

The Gunners have endured a hard few weeks, with Wenger's men having been knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich and also dropping down into sixth place in the Premier League table.
The uncertainty over the Frenchman's future is leading to increasing unrest among Arsenal's fans, with further protests reportedly planned ahead of Sunday's crunch Premier League clash against Manchester City. I will remain like that. It's a subject that, at the moment, is not sorted completely out.
Wenger said after the loss at The Hawthorns that he would reveal his future plans "soon", but he would not offer a more specific time frame.
"I played in the street, and we also used to go to the local jail to play", Sanchez added.
"My commitment will be exactly the same all the time".
Arsenal, meanwhile, have been downright bad since the turn of 2017 and face missing out on Champions League football for the first time since 1994/95.
Sanchez reportedly had an angry exchange with national team goalkeeper and captain Claudio Bravo - who is likely to be on the bench rather than the pitch for City on Sunday.
The London club's upheaval in recent months continues to cast doubt over Wenger's future at the club, as well as the future of the players, should their manager continue in his role.
"It is true that it happened before when we were in a position financially where we had to sell our best players, but that is not the case anymore".
Beto O'Rourke set to announce Senate bid
Hardly anyone in state or national politics considers it realistic that the national party will heavily invest in this race. He has already filed papers to run for re-election, but his campaign spokeswoman declined comment on O'Rourke's plans.
Sanchez and Ozil will have one year left on their contract in the summer and have been linked with a move away from their current employers.
"I am happy in London and I hope to finish my contract there (at Arsenal)", Sanchez told El Grafico.
"It's quite hard being around the training ground because the tension is running very, very high just with the pure fact no-one knows whether Wenger is going or staying".
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been receiving unjust criticism and should extend his 20-year reign at the club, midfielder Alex Iwobi has said.
"He has one-and-a-half years [left on his] contract so I don't think that it is an immediate concern for Arsenal football club".
In addition, 86 percent said they don't think the club board has handled the issue of Wenger's contract in a manner that is "in the best interests of Arsenal Football Club". It is time Arsenal look at alternatives for the Czech legend, even if they don't want to spend huge in the department they already have a ready-made replacement in the form of Wojciech Szczesny - who is now on loan at Roma. With that in mind I am going for a 2-1 win to City. "I can understand that completely".
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes it is not a good time for them to face Arsenal in Premier League.
"It's a good opportunity for us to bounce back". In a very positive way.
