Arsenal supporters fight in the stands over Arsene Wenger

Arsenal supporters fight in the stands over Arsene Wenger

The Gunners fell behind early, with Leroy Sane striking in the fifth minute to put City ahead.

After the two clubs reached a tie, Manchester City's Sergio Aguero nearly scored again, at which point Wenger was not having it anymore.

"We started with a high level of anxiety and they punished us straight away", said Wenger, who is still to reveal whether he will quit at the end of the season.

"It will help us to rebuild confidence because the players showed mental strength".

"If a new manager was to come in now though, it needs to be someone who will instantly make the fans think "yes - we have the right man for the job".

"Mathematically, for both teams it's not the best operation".

Arsenal have only accrued six points from a possible 27 this term against other teams in the Premier League's top seven, but a draw kept them within seven points of fourth-placed City with a game in hand.

Former Arsenal midfielder Gilberto Silva says that the Gunners' current squad must stand up and fight for manager Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal have never finished outside top-four under Wenger, who sees increased importance in finishing with one of the four Champions League qualification spots this season.




Arsene Wenger is usually a big talking point on the show and it would seem their voices have been heard after club CEO Ivan Gazidis spoke to a fans' group before the City game. I love to win football games and I just focus on that.

Like Wenger, Danny Welbeck praised his team mates' character in fighting back, but conceded that there was room for improvement as Arsenal look to salvage a testing campaign.

Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny is a doubt for Wednesday's London derby after being forced out of the City game at half-time.

"If you listen to (Manchester City manager) Pep Guardiola, he said the other day that to achieve the top four in England is a trophy because it's so hard".

"It's not for me to say if it's in the right hands or not but I do believe what he has done in the past is incredible", the French global said.

He also expressed regret that City had been denied an injury-time penalty for a handball by Nacho Monreal that the Spaniard supposedly admitted to Guardiola after the game.

"But we forgot a little bit to play".

"I don't know how long I will be here", he said.

With defending like that, neither side deserved to take the three points, and Wenger was left looking for positives at the end of exciting if error-strewn match.
