A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Amid all of the uncertainty off the field, Arsenal have gone five games without a win on it.Coquelin, though, insists there is no cause for concern and has backed Arsene Wenger to turn the tide, telling the BBC World Football Show: “It’s not a crisis, they just need a couple of results to get going again.“People tend to forget what Wenger has done for the club.“I understand the frustration but everyone should stand by him, everyone should be behind [him]. That’s the only way results are going to turn around.”Losing Alexis to a domestic rival will do the Arsenal cause few favours, but they are already working hard on bringing in cover.Henrikh Mkhitaryan could be included as part of an agreement with United, while Goal revealed on Friday that Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has also agreed personal terms with the Gunners.Coquelin admits additions will be essential, with Wenger in need of support in search of results and an expectant fan base demanding that any losses are suitably covered.He added: “If they let Sanchez go, what I am sure of is they will have to strengthen the team, because he will be a big miss.“For fans, they demand a competitive team. They will be upset if no-one comes in the transfer market and they let Sanchez go.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.
