Wenger says he has reached decision on Arsenal future

Wenger says he has reached decision on Arsenal future

The Gunners lost to West Brom, 3-1, and are five points back of fourth place Liverpool with just one match in hand.

Several fans brandished "WENGER OUT" banners at the final whistle.

"We have to keep fighting because it's not been pretty for us recently", Oxlade-Chamberlain said, "and I'm sure it's not going to get any easier anytime soon". In the second half you could see he couldn't anymore. "Today I do not worry about that".

Wenger had previously said that he had yet to decide what he would do, with the offer of a new two-year contract on the table.

It was an eventful encounter, both on the pitch and above it as two planes pulling banners - one pro-Arsene Wenger and the other against the Arsenal boss - made circles around The Hawthorns.

It is understood that, contrary to reports from German newspaper Bild, Arsenal have not made an official approach to Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel and seem resolved to stand by Wenger.

"I don't think that's enough".

"I am pleased because to play Stoke at this point of the season, you have to be prepared mentally and physically", said Conte. We are in a unique bad patch we never had in 20 years. "I know what I (will) do". In the first half he was the one who created many chances, made unsafe situations and in the second half you could see that he couldn't anymore.

"We showed all the attributes to win a game".

The loss increased the pressure on the beleaguered Frenchman and left Arsenal facing the prospect of failing to finish in the top four for the first time since he joined the club in 1996.

The Gunners fell behind to Craig Dawson's header but Alexis Sanchez quickly equalised.

Henry seemed nearly lost for words watching a slow-motion replay of Dawson's second goal in which three unmarked West Brom players were jostling with each other to head home.

"Overall our record against set-pieces is quite good".

However, Wenger feels a lack of confidence rather than an attitude problems is at the root of Arsenal's current issues.

Asked why he thought Wenger would stay, Pulis replied: "Because he told me".

"They mark zonally so you have to do it a bit different", said Pulis. Managers do it differently.
