Arsenal Players Apologise To Fans For Brighton Shambles

Wenger odds on to depart Arsenal but his departure if far from certain

On Sunday at Brighton, they were undone twice with the minimum of fuss as Shane Duffy capitalised on Petr Cech's miscalculation to set up Lewis Dunk and then Glenn Murray made the most of Shkodran Mustafi's poor positioning to condemn the Gunners to a fourth successive defeat. "We have to stick together; we have no other solution".

"I'm sorry to the Gooners out there". We need two teams to collapse and I don't see that happening.

"I know it's hard at the moment in this hard period we are going through as a team but we need you". We were good first half and might have scored another.

Arsenal has now lost its fourth match in a row since beating Ostersunds in Sweden in a Europa tie.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger defiantly insisted he could lead the crisis-stricken Gunners from their malaise despite admitting it was all but impossible for his side to finish in the Premier League's top four after defeat to Brighton.

And their season continues to unravel following this 2-1 reverse, with a large section of the travelling support calling for Wenger's head at one point in the first half.

But while the 58-year-old has vast experience at the highest level, including winning the Premier League in 2010 with Chelsea, and he is available, his strength has been more in managing established top teams than leading clubs out of mediocrity. We lost a little bit of our quality but we need to stay united.

He added: "We haven't seen anything from Mkhitaryan in an Arsenal shirt yet and this is when you need your big players, in an attacking sense, to get you back into a game".

Koscielny said "of course" the players are behind Wenger but the 32-year-old France worldwide acknowledged results must improve.

'Back in the day, you knew you were going to be in for a tough game.

"It's always been the same here".

It's not just the defeats, but the way they are surrounding. We're as disappointed as them.

Former players have also hit out at the current team, and Emmanuel Petit told SFR Sport he felt some players had "given up". "Who can forget the same manager and nearly same players were champions previous year?"

Seeing Arsenal go through a crisis is nothing new.

"I want to grab the players by the collar, shake them up".

Arsenal, in the manner true to a team chasing a result, had all of the ball in the closing stages with Aubameyang coming the closest to salvaging a point for his side, but they could not find the equaliser they craved. "Don't even argue with me".
