The goal set for Liverpool this season was to finish in the top four and return to the Champions League. By the way, the second leg in Munich with team "Arsenal" will play next week, but there will be no power to save him a Frenchman? Georginio Wijnaldum finished the Gunners off with a goal in stoppage time. When the German centre-back was asked about whether the players wanted Wenger to remain, Mertesacker appeared uncertain how to answer before laughing at the question.
Unless Arsenal do manage to turn around their tie and progress to the next round, many among the Emirates faithful are likely to continue hoping this is Wenger's last season.
"If Ozil was fit that day, you could understand why he would be put on the bench".
While everything seems good between Sanchez and Wenger at the moment, the forward is still expected to leave Arsenal in the summer with the likes of Juventus and PSG keen to sign him.
One way to save that might be to just announce his retirement from the club at the end of the season.
"Our best player has been dropped today and came on and proved he shouldn't have been", Wright said on BT Sport.More news: Oscars 2017: Emma Stone Wins Best Actress for La La Land
The Gunners had been quite pedestrian in the first-half, with Olivier Giroud's header in the 21st minute stretching Mignolet, but nothing apart from that and Wenger was forced to send Sanchez on in a bid to spark some life into his side.
Klopp is desperate to avoid a similar scenario in 2017-18 and has vowed to bring in new players in order to strengthen his team.
United stays sixth with 49 points, the same as fifth-placed Liverpool which hosts fourth-placed Arsenal later Saturday.
For Liverpool, it was the ideal way to come back after a disappointing loss to Leicester City on Monday.
The game was just 10 minutes old when Mane's low cross evaded both Arsenal centre-halves to allow Firmino to take a touch and fire high into the net for his first goal in seven matches but third in four league matches against the north Londoners. But disappointing results like the one against Leicester has seen them being unable to mount a title challenge. "We all have the same plan, the sporting director, scouting department, owners, myself - we all want to make this club as successful as possible so we will spend money in the summer".
"We did really well". We analyzed it and that wasn't enjoyable. "We have an opportunity against Bayern after that to show we can cause them problems". "It's the rollercoaster of the Premier League". "It's not always going up". Development is inconsistent. Development generally is inconsistent and until we are the team we want to be - then you will be consistent.
