Ferguson presents Wenger with gift ahead of Manchester United v Arsenal

Arsenal v Atletico Madrid confirmed team news Welbeck and Lacazette lead Gunners line Costa on bench

Alexandre Lacazette says the future of all Arsenal players are on the line as the club continue to search for Arsene Wenger's replacement.

Manchester United will host Arsenal in a much-anticipated Premier League 2017/18 outing at Old Trafford on Sunday, April 29. Wenger's 28and final game at Old Trafford as Arsenal manager had none of the blood and thunder, the epic story-lines and sub-plots, the tension and tantrums, of old.

When Wenger stepped out of the visitors' dugout minutes before kickoff, he was greeted by a thorough, warm round of applause from Manchester United fans.

Arsenal last won the Premier League title in the 2003/04 season and the Red Devils lifted the trophy on five occasions under Sir Alex Ferguson in the time that has passed. "I want to go peacefully, and with Mourinho now because he is a great manager".

It's widely considered that Chelsea had been United's biggest threat following Roman Abramovich's takeover at Stamford Bridge until Manchester City's recent dominance. To be honest, at all my other clubs I had the feeling of already thinking about what to do next. "That was my first year in this country".

"He has said some very cruel things which he considers to be gamesmanship but I consider to be just disgusting really". No doubt. But when I arrived in 2004, Arsenal was the champion, the Invincibles, and then I arrived. "He is, without doubt, one of the greatest Premier League managers and I am proud to have been a rival, a colleague and a friend to such a great man".

The next few days will be crucial for Wenger and his club with Thursday's make-or-break trip to Spain for their Europa League semi-final second leg tie against Atletico Madrid.

"Of course I knew about the rivalry".

Arsene Wenger is set to field a weakened side in his final bow at Old Trafford as the Arsenal manager after he made a decision to rest multiple key players to give his side the best possible chance in next Thursday's Europa League semi-final second-leg against Atletico Madrid.
