Sanchez left out of Arsenal squad amid transfer rumours

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez 'agrees financial deal' with Manchester United

It's understood that he is now trying to force through a move to United following City's easing-off on Friday, and any completed deal would prove to be a huge coup for the red half of Manchester as they look to try and haul in their fierce rivals and the 15-point gap that has emerged at the top of the Premier League table.

Subs used: Mousset (6), Pugh (6), Afobe (N/A).

Subs Used: Ramsey (5), Walcott (5).

It is a big indication that his proposed move away from the Emirates is in the offing, and comes hot on the heels of Arsene Wenger's admission that Sanchez definitely won't sign a new deal with the north Londoners.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles twisted twice in the box to craft space, only to see his curling effort clip the bar (7), but though Jack Wilshere was impressing on familiar turf, real rhythm eluded both sides in a scrappy first half-hour.

Three girls dead as boat with 34 students capsizes in Maharashtra
Rescue operations are still underway to trace the six missing children, who mostly hail from Palghar district in Maharashtra. According to news agency ANI , four students lost their lives, while 25 have been rescued.

Lewis Cook, Ryan Fraser and Dan Gosling all return, taking over from Harry Arter, Marc Pugh and ex-Arsenal man Benik Afobe.

Arsenal broke the deadlock seven minutes after the restart.

United are ready to make Sanchez the Premier League's highest earner with a contract worth £400,000-a-week and are ready to submit a £30 million offer to Arsenal, which is only £5m short of the Gunners' valuation.

Manchester United are reportedly "close to agreeing" a deal to sign Arsenal contract rebel Alexis Sanchez and have moved ahead of Manchester City, who are hesitant to push for a move that could cost £124 million. "There are lots of already strong teams in the Premier League, not like in other leagues where it is hard for the top sides to lose points, and there is a very important difference of points between first and second".

Jordon Ibe struck the victor but Callum Wilson proved pivotal, showing desire to poach the equaliser and then strength to hold up a ball with back to goal and set up the decisive strike. Ibrahimovic has not hit the heights of last season for United, where he scored 28 times in 46 appearances given that he suffered a nasty leg break in a Europa League fixture back in April.
