88% of AST members believed that Arsene Wenger should leave the club when his position is reviewed in the summer with 7% believing he should stay and 5% undecided. Arsene Wenger’s side were outplayed by Pep Guardiola’s side in the Premier League tie with three quick first-half goals from Bernardo Silva, David Silva and Leroy Sané.
The Merseyside club’s owner, Farhad Moshiri, is said to be a huge fan of Wenger, and is desperate to bring him in should he be forced out of the Emirates.
Arsenal’s top-four Premier League hopes are all but over after a 2-1 loss to Brighton, with the Gunners now 13 points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham.
The defender said the defeat at Brighton capped the worst week of his career, coming as it did after Manchester City beat Arsenal in the Carabao Cup final and Premier League.
Arsenal are now 13 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with only nine Premier League games to go. “We tried to fight and play football but you could see the confidence is very down”.
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”.
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.
“At the beginning of the season, I said I’d make the Europa League our priority because I didn’t think we’d finish in the top four”.
Speaking after the famous win, via Sky Sports, the former Newcastle United boss was full of praise for his plucky side, and stated that he was particularly pleased to get a win over one of the league’s so-called “Big Six” teams. And looking at Arsenal’s form, I wouldn’t be surprised if Arsenal get to a similar situation and get thrashed by Milan now. You have to earn the right to play that kind of football and you can not just rock up on the pitch to win. Then we’ll see where we go from there. And the way Arsenal and Cech himself have been performing now, it looks like he might have to work for the next clean sheet harder than he would have thought.
“It’s the first time I lost so many games on the trot in my life”.
