"Arsenal are on the road to nowhere under Arsene Wenger, a situation that has been sadly apparent for four to five seasons but now all but the overly sentimental can see it", he wrote.

With Arsenal slipping behind English football's elite, the 68-year-old Wenger's future is back to being the subject of much debate as he approaches the end of 22nd season in charge. "The game on Thursday night is what's important, all the rest makes headlines but it's not really interesting".

Meanwhile, the Gunners are also said to be keeping tabs on former Liverpool boss and current Celtic head coach Brendan Rodgers, who would be sure to jump at a Premier League return after success in Scotland. The Belgium global has played in just 13 of City's 43 matches this season but made a big impact in the win over Arsenal and celebrated wildly when he steered in the second goal of a 3-0 win.

"I'm finding it hard to take because it's a wonderful football club with a great history and tradition, but at the moment they're in decline in terms of their performance levels and their standards", he added. However bad it can be I have always been like this. My focus is to get the team ready for the game.

"I've turned the whole world down to respect my contracts", he added.

After travelling to sixth-placed Arsenal, City host champions Chelsea in the league on Sunday followed by the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie against Basel.

"I am fortunate to be at a club with incredible support when it comes to medical staff", said Kompany.

In a report, United Nations investigators said such violations may have constituted crimes against humanity. The camp opened last month to house returning refugees, but none have.

Addressing a question from a national newspaper journalist about his deal, Wenger replied: "What is above you?"

"It does come down to the manager, but he puts the team out there".

"It's not always possible to win games".

"We have to live with [criticism]; it's part of the modern game. You analyse well, focus on the next one and respond in a united way", he said.

"You have to say as well, we played a team that dominates the Premier League".
