Fergie sticks up for Wenger; claims Arsenal pressure is unfair

Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal future won’t be decided until after FA Cup final

Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal future won’t be decided until after FA Cup final

"One of them is, of course, what is happening with the manager, the future, the players who have to come in, the renewal of contracts".

Arsene Wenger's side were always in control despite the dismissal of Laurent Koscielny in the 14th minute, but Liverpool's 3-0 victory over Middlesbrough at Anfield means that the Gunners have missed out on a Champions League place.

Wenger said it would be his decision whether Sanchez stayed or not.

Romelu Lukaku halved the deficit with a penalty, his 25th league goal of the season, but Arsenal hung on and Ramsey struck with a superb curler with seconds remaining.

Wenger's current deal expires at the end of the season. Who do you get in to keep that club the way they are for the next 20 years?

"I want to win the cup for my club and that's all I care about", he said.

"If we finish the job well, it can be maximum one point short".

Fergie sticks up for Wenger; claims Arsenal pressure is unfair

When the topic was brought up again and it was put to the 67-year-old that his future would be decided at the board meeting, he replied: "I didn't say that".

"We still have some worries about Mustafi", Wenger said. "If he doesn't play well then Chelsea are going to cut through Arsenal like a knife through butter".

A 3-4-3 formation was designed for Holding to play alongside two experienced center-backs, but with only Mertesacker likely to be available Wenger would have to look to youth and inexperience to persist. But knowing the player, knowing his character and commitment to the club - which I don't question at all - he will do absolutely everything to be fit for Saturday.

Ian Wright is backing Arsenal to beat Everton in their final Premier League game at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

However, with three centre backs potentially out for the Gunners' last game of the season, we could see Wenger resort back to a four at the back. I have until Saturday to decide [about a formation change].

Pressed on whether it would be his last game ever in north London he replied: "I can not tell you that".
