Since winning 5-0 at Southampton in the FA Cup on 28 January, things have gone pretty miserably for Arsenal and it’s now looking as though they could miss out on a top four spot in the Premier League for the first time since Arsene Wenger took charge.
The Gunners have lost six of their last nine matches in all competitions, including two humiliating defeats against Bayern Munich in the Champions League and Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at The Hawthorns has intensified pressure on Wenger.
The Frenchman is clearly aware of supporter protests wanting him gone from this long-standing role although admitted after the defeat against West Brom that he has made a decision concerning his future and this will become public knowledge soon.
It seems perfectly possible that Wenger will sign a new deal and there have been rumours surfacing that Arsenal FC are happy to retain his services, despite growing supporter impatience with the situation.
It certainly appears that Arsenal are going stagnant under Wenger and missing out on the top four this season would bear this out. Alexis Sanchez has often cut a frustrated figure on the pitch this season and the Chilean might well end up leaving the north London club in the summer.
Perhaps Wenger will pass up the chance to continue his reign at the Emirates Stadium and his departure would see the majority of Arsenal supporters thanking him for the success brought to the club.
Massimiliano Allegri remains the favourite to become the next Arsenal FC manager at odds of 4/1, with money coming for Thomas Tuchel recently although it appears as though rumours concerning the London club speaking to the German are not true.
Eddie Howe has drifted to 12/1 to become the next manager of Arsenal, with Brendan Rodgers also available at that price.
