Wenger’s latest transfer admission of guilt came last week when he revealed to Sky Sports that some regret that he didn’t sign Raheem Sterling as a teenager from Queens Park Rangers, before Liverpool snapped him for £600,000 in 2010.

“We had many players on the flanks, but Sterling was at QPR – that’s where we should take the players,” Wenger said.

“We watched him but you miss obvious players. The history of every club is full of top players that you missed. At the time Liverpool were quicker.”

Sterling, who joined Liverpool at the age of 16, left Anfield for Manchester City last summer in a £49m move.

During his Liverpool career, Sterling scored two goals against Arsenal. Both came in a 5-1 win at Anfield in February 2014.

Sterling will face Arsenal for the first time as a City player when his side visit the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League this evening.
