Isco has been a permanent figure in Zinedine Zidane’s midfielder this season scoring five goals in 24 appearances. But his position is apparently about to be placed in jeopardy after Gareth Bale’s return to full fitness. The Welshman has struggled with persistent calf injuries since swapping Tottenham for Real in 2013.

Arsenal news: Wayne Rooney makes HUGE Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud claims

The former Manchester United forward thinks that Giroud should be one of the first names on the Arsenal team sheet. He also believes that Wenger was wrong not to sell stars Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil in the summer – despite the latter’s decent start to the season. Giroud has made only one Premier League start this season which came against West Ham last week. However, the 31-year-old has eight goals already this term, and Rooney thinks he should be ahead of £46million forward Alexandre Lacazette in the pecking order….

Bournemouth v Liverpool: Premier League – live!

1 min Blow your whistle! Blow your hoooorn! [embedded content] Out they come. Bournemouth payers are hugging and stuff; in the studio, Graeme Souness is doubtless stroking his thighs as though Gennaro Gattuso has just offered out Joe Jordan. The players are tunnelled; Jordan Henderson is modelling his gameface. So how do you defend Salah? On the ball, by forcing him outside, but what do you do once he’s on the move?
