Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is coy about trying for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez again in January. Speculation mounts that Suarez might try and force his way out of Liverpool again - but Wenger wouldn't be drawn on whether he will make a move.

He said: "He plays for Liverpool tomorrow. He is doing very well, what is important for me is the players that play for Arsenal, not those who could play for Arsenal.

"What is very important tomorrow is the players who play against Luis Suarez.

"I'm not focused on that [Suarez] now. What is important for me, 24 hours before the game, is that I believe that [Olivier] Giroud has proven since the start of the season that he's an exceptional striker.

"I'm convinced that he will be up for it to show that tomorrow again."
