Five signs Arsene Wenger is going to stay on as Arsenal manager

Arsenal now sit six points behind fourth placed Liverpool, who occupy the final Champions League spot after their 1-1 draw with Manchester City on Sunday, but the Gunners have two games in hand over Jurgen Klopp's men - as do Manchester United, who jumped two points ahead of Wenger's side on Sunday. This is an exception and I think three, four, five years is one cycle.

The Frenchman's contract expires in the summer, and with the Emirates club now on the worst run they have experienced under more than two decades of Wenger's leadership, speculation is mounting that he could step aside at the end of the campaign.

Arsenal dropped to sixth place in the Premier League table at the weekend, sitting six points behind fourth-placed Liverpool now, and cries are growing louder for the board to part ways with the 67-year-old.

The north London side suffered another bitter blow to their hopes of Champions League qualification on Saturday as they slumped to a 3-1 loss to West Brom at The Hawthorns.

"I'm somewhat overwhelmed at the tens of thousands of impressions and retweets of the last 24 hours", Moores said.

As it is, Wenger believes Arsenal could cope with an absence from the Champions League, a competition in which they have participated for each of the last 19 seasons.

"Don't worry, I know what I will do in my future", Wenger told reporters. Everybody has to look at himself.

You are never going to get me saying a manager should go or be sacked.

Who should replace him as the manager of Arsenal? "I will say this", said Pulis. They could not handle Albion's counterattacking strategy, and nor, moreover, their set-piece threat, which led to two headed goals from centre-back Craig Dawson.

Alan Shearer on Match of the Day accused Arsenal of defending like an "Under-10 team". I am trying to find one positive from that, but I can't find it.

Do YOU want to write for GiveMeSport? The club have dismissed the reports as "not true", another indication they could be prepared to make an imminent announcement.
