Arsene Wenger believes in top four target

More recently, pro-Wenger fans clashed with those calling for his resignation during Arsenal's 2-2 draw with Manchester City on Sunday.

The unrest at Emirates Stadium has been growing this season with the Gunners once again falling short in their challenge for the Premier League title, while they were eliminated at the last 16 in the Champions League after a 10-2 aggregate battering from Bayern Munich.

The result prevented City from recapturing third place from Liverpool and left them 11 points below leaders Chelsea, who welcome Guardiola's side to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

Former Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson told BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme that Wenger "should declare his future for the good of the club".

The Gunners face a real fight to secure a top-four finish this season - something Wenger has achieved in every previous season since taking charge in 1996 - but with just one league win since February they now sit sixth.

"It is three guys".

Arsene Wenger admits he does not know who captained his Arsenal side for the second half of their draw with Manchester City.

Arsenal eventually ran out comfortable winners over West Ham thanks to Mesut Ozil, Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud goals.

"I felt they were absolutely sensational and helped the team today get through that hard moment". I am not scared and accept the judgement of the people. "Let's finish as strong as we can and show that we have some resilience, some quality and some mental spirit that we have shown against City".

"I'm not in politics", said Wenger, who described the support of the fans on Sunday as outstanding.

The "reminder", however, is one which Arsenal fans will surely not appreciate, in that it seems to demand they be satisfied with an extremely close battle for the top four, with six teams legitimately in contention and Arsenal, despite their history, now outsiders.

The under-fire Frenchman made the startling revelation on Tuesday morning when he was asked who took the armband from Laurent Koscielny when he was forced off at half-time with an Achilles problem.

"I am clear in my head, that's the most important thing".

"We didn't play in the first half".
