Wenger: Arsenal fans took top four for granted

Speaking after the game which saw the Gunners drop two more points in their bid to finish in the top four he said: "Despite all that happens on the fans front I thought our fans were fantastic today".

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. I also remember the TV commentator remarking on what a odd and subdued atmosphere there was in such a crucial game, but Wenger saw things differently. "But we showed strong mental resources".

Arsenal have come back from weak positions in the past under Wenger, maintaining a record that has seen the club finish no lower than fourth in any of the past 20 seasons.

Arsenal had to do without Laurent Koscielny in the second half after the defender suffered an injury to his Achilles and was replaced by Gabriel.

There were renewed protests from a noisy, but relatively small, group of Arsenal fans before kick-off to illustrate the pressure on Arsenal's manager but there were precious few signs of discontent inside the stadium. "But we wanted to win the game and finished with plenty of offensive players on the pitch".

"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 wonderful", the French worldwide said. A reason for this is Arsene Wenger, the one that the supporters want to see leaving the club.

"I'm not in politics", said Wenger, who described the support of the fans on Sunday as outstanding.

However, the collaboration didn't make it on Drizzy's More Life , fueling speculations that their relationship ended abruptly. Lopez shares custody of nine-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony; the singer divorce in 2014.

City certainly missed an excellent opportunity to capitalise on Arsenal's vulnerability as the visitors again paid the price for some sloppy defending. "There's time to improve", said Guardiola.

Guardiola said: "Chelsea deserve (to be) where they are".

The Gunners boss's current deal is set to expire at the end of the season but the north London club are reported to have offered the 67-year-old a new two-year contract extension. "We are professional football people".

"We didn't play in the first half".

"It's not easy to be full-back, but how he defended him and how he played with the ball offensively".

"In the moments we suffered, they were absolutely incredible in a positive way".
