One club for Alexis but my future's not sorted, says Arsene

The former France worldwide spoke in no uncertain terms about the Arsenal players, though, and has called on them to take responsibility and try to lift some of the pressure off Wenger, whose future remains far from certain.

Not only did 78 per cent of fans reject the idea of a new contract for Wenger, 86 per cent felt the management was not acting in the best interests of the club.

On the subject of his own future, Arsenal's manager since 1996 said: "I've always been very clear in my mind".

The Frenchman is now enduring arguably the toughest few months in his two-decade tenure after seeing the Gunners crash out of the Champions League in embarrassing circumstances and drop out of the Premier League's top four. My commitment will be exactly the same.

Bernstein, who quit City in March 2003, said: "For a period of time, a number of years, I was the man".

"The situation is not sorted out and I believe at the moment we probably focus on what is essential".

The Frenchman has been offered a new two-year contract to prolong his 21-year reign and reports suggest he will eventually sign it. It is 13 years since Arsenal last won the league and their 10-2 aggregate defeat by Bayern condemned them to a seventh successive last 16 exit in the Champions League.

Next up for Wenger and his side is a home fixture against Manchester City on Sunday evening which is a must win game for the Gunners if they're to have any chance of finishing in the top four and playing Champions League football next season. At the moment our results are not going the way we want but, as well, we have to make sure that the priority for us is what happens on the pitch. Arsenal chairman Chips Keswick refused to comment on Wenger's future after being doorstepped by a camera crew from Sky Sports News.

"On their day, they (City) are fantastic, a wonderful attacking side and so on, but they've disappointed", he said.

That could mean PS4 gamers will get early access to DLC and perhaps the beta, which is also hinted at by the leaked poster. It shows that other games such as "FIFA 18", "Red Dead Redemption 2" and "Tekken 7" are already available for pre-orders.

Both he and team-mate Mesut Ozil are holding out for parity with the Premier League's top earners and Sanchez was reported as telling reporters in South America this week that he is happy in London but wants to play in a team with a "winning mentality".

"You do not need to concede a corner because I have not signed a five-year contract".

Iwobi, however, remains optimistic the key duo will extend their contracts with the club. I hope he'll stay at the club. He wants to win the championship and that is what everybody wants. "I can understand that".

For all the media talk that Wenger wants to stay, he knows he must produce something positive this season.

Wenger said Ozil was in line to make his first league appearance since February 11 against City following illness and a hamstring injury. But Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla is not expected to feature again this season due to an Achilles problem.

"No manager is bigger than the club and I think Arsene Wenger is running the club at the minute".

Alex Iwobi says Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been receiving unjust criticism.

Smith, who coaches the ladies' development squad, says "tension is running high" at the club's training ground because of the uncertainty. "He's always helped me and developed me as player", Iwobi told BBC Sport. "I don't think it's fair considering what he's done".
