"It's Easy To Take The Trousers Off" - Wenger On Arsenal's Poor Form

His demise this season has been sad to see for those who worked with him at his peak

And, although criticism for the 68-year-old is nothing new, the opprobrium has risen to unprecedented levels this term as Arsenal's decline has become ever more apparent.

The Spaniard isn't the only former player who has been linked with taking over at Arsenal, with club-record goalscorer Thierry Henry suggesting he could take the position should he be approached.

"I left him at home because I played him in the two games against City, without a lot of training in behind", Wenger told Arsenal's official website. I don't know how but now we are in a bad situation and the results are not with us. If I had listened to people who were talking about where I was going to be, I would not have been here.

"Knowing him (Wenger) as I do, yes (I am confident he will turn it around)", he said.

Even 2017 Oscars host, Jimmy Kimmel will be returning 'cos as his Oscar promo showed, he clearly has unfinished business. From the two stars' point-of-view, this gives them a chance at something like redemption after their unfortunate moment.

"I have been here for 21 years and I always respected my contract", said Wenger.

Before the meeting, each member was individually surveyed and asked if they support Wenger remaining as manager of the club beyond the 2017/18 season.

His longevity is in stark contrast to those around him.

Arsenal's next match comes on Thursday when they take on AC Milan in the Europa League - a competition which represents the most realistic chance of salvaging anything from their season.

For the last month, the Carl Vinson has been deployed in the South China Sea, one of the world's busiest shipping lanes. China is now the de facto superpower in this region, and by far the most important trading partner for Vietnam.

The Frenchman is also the only manager active in Europe's top 55 divisions to have begun his current employment in the 20th century.

The Gunners are sixth in the Premier League, lost 3-0 to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final, exited the FA Cup in the third round and must beat AC Milan in the Europa League to maintain hopes of salvaging their season.

Arsenal have lacked the fluidity and sharpness in their game for quite a time now and yesterday was nothing different from that.

- Pascal Gross has assisted Glenn Murray four times in the Premier League this season - only Cesar Azpilicueta (six for Alvaro Morata) and Kevin De Bruyne (five for Sergio Aguero) have assisted a player more.

Man Utd midfielder McTominay meets with England boss Southgate
The 21-year-old has made 15 first-team appearances this season, building on his debut against Crystal Palace last May. Although born in England, McTominay qualifies for Scotland through his grandparents.

Arsène Wenger has accepted that a top-four finish is out of the equation, which means Arsenal need to win the Europa League to return to the Champions League. Arsenal did not play Champions League football for the first time in two decades and are now 13 points behind Tottenham in the race for fourth place in the Premier League.
