Wenger now focusing on Roma
Gunners boss pleased with performance ahead of Roma clash


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is delighted his side are back among the goals ahead of their trip to Roma for their UEFA Champions League second leg.


The Gunners scored three goals for the second game in a row after being heavily criticised when they recently went four Premier League games without a single goal.

Arsenal secured a place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup after beating Burnley 3-0 at the Emirates on Sunday with goals from Carlos Vela, Eduardo and Emmanuel Eboue.

It was not just the quality of the performance which pleased Wenger but the quality of all three goals.

"I believe we were serious when it was difficult and we added brilliance when they dropped their level," he said.

Conscientious

"Overall I believe we did the job in a conscientious and good way. I believe when you score goals it helps always to lift the confidence and the belief and it's important for us to go to Roma feeling we have done the job well.

"The first two were exceptional goals but I also liked the third one because it was a good combination, the way we like to play.

"What was important for us also, going away in the Champions League was that we didn't concede."

After Eduardo had volleyed home with the outside of his left foot into the top corner he made way for Theo Walcott to make his first appearance since November.

Wenger added: "It is important to give them competition and to know that even if they are not completely there yet we have resources always on the bench if they are needed to come on and score goals or be dangerous.

"But it was as well to get them through, Theo for 20 minutes and Eduardo for 70 minutes without any injuries."

Benayoun blow rocks Liverpool as star faces fortnight out with hamstring tear

Not confirmed on the Official Liverpool website, taken from The Daily Mail:

Liverpool have been left reeling from another injury blow after a training ground accident left man-of-the-moment Yossi Benayoun facing at least a fortnight on the sidelines.

Benayoun headed Liverpool's winning goal against Real Madrid in the Champions' League but seems certain to miss Tuesday's return leg at Anfield and next Saturday's all-important lunchtime showdown with Manchester United in the Barclays Premier League.

Sportsmail understands the in-form Israel midfielder collided with a team-mate in training and immediately hobbled off with what initial reports suggest is a slight hamstring tear.
Yossi Benayoun

He relayed the news to Israel's team doctor, amid fears he could struggle to be fit for his country's World Cup qualifier with Greece later this month.

Liverpool are more concerned about his availability for a critical phase in their bid to close in on another Champions' League triumph and remain in contention for their first domestic League title in 19 years.

Benayoun has emerged as a key figure in recent weeks after giving his side a 1-0 first-leg lead in their last 16 tie with Real and following up with the goal that confirmed a 2-0 win over Manchester City at Anfield last weekend.

But, if the initial diagnosis proves correct, he will miss the return with Real, a visit to Old Trafford that Liverpool have to win to retain any lingering title hopes and possibly even the following weekend's home game with Aston Villa.

Liverpool have been cursed by hamstring problems this season, with Fernando Torres sidelined for a large chunk of the campaign and, more recently, Steven Gerrard needing nearly a month to recover from a slight tear.

Reds' takeover negotiations going ''really badly''

Photobucket

Efforts by Tom Hicks and George Gillett to sell Liverpool to a Kuwaiti investment consortium have stalled over their refusal to revise the £500m valuation of the club.

Negotiations with Liverpool's American co-owners are ''going really badly,'' according to Abdulla Al-Sager, one of the investors in the consortium.

Rafed Al-Kharafi and Al-Sager were guests of the club for their 2-0 home win over Chelsea last month. The Al-Kharafi family, who are one of the wealthiest in Kuwait thanks to their oil interests, are understood to head the investment consortium.

But despite the Kuwaiti consortium's interest, Al-Sager revealed in an interview with Bloomberg that ''things are going really badly, because they are asking for too much. I don't think anything will happen unless we get a better price.''

With Hicks and Gillett refusing to reduce their £500m asking price the consortium look set to wait until July, the deadline for the co-owners to refinance or repay a £300m loan.

With some observers contending that in the current economic climate the co-owners will struggle to agree a refinancing deal, Hicks and Gillett could be forced to sell for much lower than their current asking price.

The Kuwaiti consortium are not the only group Liverpool have approached, with exploratory talks understood to have taken place with potential investors in the US and Middle East.

The co-owners' stewardship of the club has not been smooth since their takeover in February 2007, largely due to a breakdown in relations between Hicks and Gillett, which in turn fed a fractious relationship between manager Rafa Benitez and out-going chief executive Rick Parry.

In recent months Hicks and Gillett have put their differences aside in order to facilitate a full or partial sale; Hicks is thought to be keen to remain involved in the club if Gillett can be convinced to sell his stake, a scenario the Kuwait group have said they would be open to.

Meanwhile, Ian Ayre has emerged as the lead contender to replace Parry as the club's chief executive, according to the Telegraph.

Ayre, a 45-year-old American businessman, was appointed by Hicks as Liverpool's commercial director 18 months ago. It is understood that Hicks holds Ayre in high regard, not least because he shares his view that Liverpool should be exploiting their global fanbase more aggressively than the club has done under Parry.

Last week Liverpool announced that Parry would be stepping down at the end of the season.
