Manchester City inflicted more pain on Arsene Wenger with a second crushing 3-0 victory over his Arsenal side in the space of four days.

However, Wenger once again finds himself vilified by Arsenal fans after the Gunners slumped to sixth place, crashed out of the FA Cup at Nottingham Forest and succumbed to a tame League Cup final loss against Manchester City on Sunday.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger have no margin for error as they fight to avoid being frozen out of the Premier League's top four and next season's Champions League. He's probably angry about not being given the consideration for what he's done for Arsenal and the Premier League.

Former Liverpool FC midfielder Ince is backing the Gunners to secure a vital 3-1 win over Brighton to end a disastrous run under Wenger.

"I understand the fans' frustration", the Czech Republic global said.

Our attendance looks worse than what Aston Villa looked like when they got relegated.

Wenger is understood to have underlined the importance of qualifying for the Champions League to his players, the defeat to City leaving them 10 points adrift of fourth placed Tottenham.

The empty seats, the apathy and the anger, added to a seventh loss since the turn of the year, only underlines that Arsenal as a club have gone stale under Wenger. A lot of teams, even Arsenal, had to do a lot of imitating to do that.

And it is a sight becoming all too familiar for fans who have grown disillusioned with life under Arsene Wenger, leaving the ex-England defender feeling hollow.

"They took advantage of defense weaknesses", Wenger said.

"We are close. It's in our hands, we can't deny it", Guardiola said, while stressing his team must focus on the next game at home to last season's champions Chelsea on Sunday.

'I felt it was a game of physically top intensity, I think we produced physically our highest performance of the season, and Man City as well, by quite far, so it was physically two teams gave a lot.

"This man is a legend in the English game". Now the most hard of all must be posed - and the answer can only be that one of the great managerial dynasties is drawing to a close.

Arsenal suffered their joint-heaviest home Premier League defeat, having also lost by three-goal margins to Coventry (1993), Middlesbrough (2001) and Chelsea (twice in 2009).

Robel: I still support Wenger to get back Arsenal to the level he brings. The Swedish striker, who scored 28 goals last season, has not played since Boxing Day after suffering a knee injury just weeks after returning from a injury layoff.

However, there are still a small section of Arsenal fans that are backing Wenger.
