Mind the gap: Tottenham Hotspur fans will love this Arsenal statistic

Nothing was ever the same when his partner in crime David Dein was forced out in 2007

An overwhelming majority of voters in an Arsenal Supporters' Trust poll have called for long-serving manager Arsene Wenger to leave the club at the end of the season.

Arsenal stars are said to be against the potential appointment of former player Mikel Arteta to replace current manager Arsene Wenger, according to The Sun.

Arsene Wenger avoided giving direct answers to questions regarding his future after Arsenal fell to another damaging defeat, this time at Brighton and Hove Albion. Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below. During the week, reports surfaced claiming Arsenal players held a crisis meeting following their second 3-0 defeat to Manchester City in the space of three days earlier this week.

They are a massive 33 points behind leaders Manchester City and 13 points behind Tottenham in fourth place.

"In the game yesterday, the body language of certain players makes me fear the worst from now until the end of the season", he said.

"We are hypothetically speaking before people jump ahead of everything, [but] I have never backed down from a challenge since I was young".




Wenger, in a somewhat freaky analogy more befitting the occasional ramblings of compatriot Eric Cantona, the former Manchester United star, added: "When you struggle for confidence, it's hard as well when you have just the pants on..."

So who will Wenger bank on to get him a pivotal result in the first leg of this last 16 tie?

"Listen, we fight. We don't go into games with our heads down". Then we'll see where we go from there. "You deserve better. That's all I have to say", he wrote on Twitter.

Souness delivered a withering assessment of Arsenal's performance at Brighton and predicted that even winning the Europa League this season would not address the underlying issues at the club.

The interval came at the right time for Brighton and while the Seagulls didn't develop the same momentum at the start of the second period, they again showed they could stretch the Arsenal defence.

The veteran French boss, who took charge at Arsenal in 1996, added: "I left Ramsey out completely of the squad, left him at home, after everything he gave physically".
