So there is more bad news today for Arsenal fans hoping that Arsene Wenger is still going to come up with the goods in the last few days of the summer transfer window, according to the Evening Standard, which is reporting that Jose Mourinho is not going to allow the Manchester United defender Phil Jones to sign for the club managed by his rival manager.
One thing that the Arsenal fans will not have to worry about at Old Trafford in the FA cup is being spat at by the Manchester United defender Jonny Evans. Because despite denying the FA charge, Evans has been banned for six games and the first of those will be the quarter-final against Arsenal. He would also miss the replay if we draw tomorrow and have to play again at the Emirates.
There are two very important games for Arsenal to get through, at home to Anderlecht and away to Swansea City, before the next international break comes around, but after that things really start to get serious for Arsene Wenger and the Gunners.
