Wenger leaves fans guessing on exit

Wenger leaves fans guessing on exit

The cracks were visible last night after Arsenal lost 3-0 to Crystal Palace, yet another must win game for the side that are now 7 points adrift of the top four.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright claimed Wenger has lost the support of his players and even the Gunners boss admitted Palace had shown more passion.

Goals from Andros Townsend, Yohan Cabaye and Luka Milivojevic inflicted a fourth straight away league defeat on Arsenal - for the first time during Wenger's 21-season reign.

The Gunners manager is out of contract at the end of season and under intense pressure to step down after another season of underachievement.

The defeat for Wenger's side leaves their top four hopes in tatters as they fall further behind the Champions League places.

Wenger praised Palace striker Christian Benteke who continued his impressive form by causing Arsenal's vulnerable defence a handful of problems. It looks on the pitch you can see that.

The spark? A certain Arsene Wenger.

The sixth-placed Arsenal did not manage a shot on target in a poor second half, though they had 72 per cent possession. "I think [the fans] are extremely disappointed, and I can understand that, like we all are". They won more decisive duels than us. However, the 67-year-old has been tipped to sign a new two-year deal.

"I face it in every press conference at the moment but tonight I'm not in the mood to speak about it", he said after the match.

Many Arsenal supporters may want to push them out the club after their antics last night... "We all did and that's not Arsenal at all", said Walcott.

"I'm disappointed and determined to put things right".

"The fact that we've lost a few away games: it's really unusual".

Arsenal are now seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, while Palace have given themselves a six-point cushion above the relegation zone.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are top but it's been some comeback from the dismal displays of 2015-16 when Jose Mourinho was sacked after the players went AWOL. Arsenal created a few chances as Alexis Sanchez looked capable of scoring whenever they went close to Palace's goal mouth, but were denied by Palace's impeccable defense.

"I don't know what to say, we are buzzing", he told Sky Sports after the game.
