Arsène Wenger defiant after 'damaging' loss to Crystal Palace

Wenger has been at Arsenal for over 20 years and has never failed to deliver a top-four finish over the course of a full season, but ex-midfielder Ray Parlour thinks the task of qualifying for the Champions League is getting more hard: "Gutted about the result".

It was another humiliating result for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who is weighing up whether to sign a contract extension at a club he has coached since 1996, amid heightened unrest from fans.

Pressed on the matter following the defeat, Wenger said it was "inconvenient" to discuss his future and he has often claimed the uncertainty has had no effect on his players, despite their alarming slide. Walcott was again captain for the night and his focus was not only of the Gunners' poor showing, but how this came across to their fans. "I understand our fans are disappointed and we all are deeply tonight. But what father would want his daughter to bring one of them home?"

"Today with the work rate and determination to log on to their possession and create chances, it was down to us shutting down throw-ins, which people don't see but that was the basis of us getting so many attacks, and then quality finishing".

Arsenal have conceded three goals in four straight away league games for the first time since 1929. It is such an wonderful club. If they finished second it was a nightmare season. There are many games ahead.

"Honestly, I'm disappointed tonight".

Flamini made 246 appearances over two spells at Arsenal but is now concentrated on helping to keep Palace in the top-flight. Arsene controls the footballing situation, he says he would tell us [his decision] "soon" and that it doesn't affect the team.

However, Palace were perhaps grateful that the error-ridden defender remained on the pitch as his inept positioning gifted them the opening goal.

A majority of Arsenal Supporters Trust (AST) members believe that it is time for Arsene Wenger to step away from the club, board member Akhil Vyas has revealed.

Speaking with Geoff Shreeves after the Crystal Palace game, Arsene Wenger didn't have much answers and his body language was all too telling. And since we can not win away from home.
