Jamie Redknapp believes Arsene Wenger's time is up at Arsenal

Arsene Wenger isn't 'a true coach'... Tony Adams developed Ashley Cole at Arsenal - NOT him, claims Lee Dixon

Arsene Wenger isn't 'a true coach'... Tony Adams developed Ashley Cole at Arsenal - NOT him, claims Lee Dixon

Arsene Wenger insisted he was still the right man to turn around Arsenal's fortunes after a 2-1 loss to Brighton on Sunday saw the Gunners suffer their fourth straight defeat in all competitions.

Following a run of four consecutive defeats across three competitions for the Gunners, 88 per cent of AST members at a meeting on Monday called for Wenger's tenure to end when his position is reviewed after the current campaign.

Manager Arsene Wenger said after back-to-back 3-0 defeats to Manchester City, including the League Cup final, that his players' confidence was low and Chris Hughton's team took full advantage on Sunday.

"It is very hard, almost impossible now, we are too far behind", Wenger told the BBC when asked about Arsenal's top-four prospects. Let us know in the comments...

9 - with nine games remaining, Arsenal are already mathematically eliminated from title contention - 33 points behind leaders Manchester City with 27 to play for.

He told Sky Sports following another disappointing display against Brighton: "It's the first time it happens in my whole career, I must say".

Europa League success can still be secured, which would over the Gunners a route back into the Champions League, but AC Milan await at the last-16 stage and there are still several other heavyweight outfits setting their sights on continental glory.

Mel Kiper's second mock has Cardinals drafting wide receiver
Wyoming's Josh Allen is still slated to be the No. 1 overall pick, per Kiper, when the 2018 NFL Draft gets underway on April 6. ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. believes former Georgia inside linebacker Roquan Smith is a ideal fit with one particular team.

"We are hypothetically speaking before people jump ahead of everything, [but] I have never backed down from a challenge since I was young".

Wenger said he is focussing on doing his job when asked about stepping away from his post. "We play Sunday, Thursday, Sunday, Sunday... it's almost physically impossible to play this number of games".

Keown is not a fan of central midfielder Granit Xhaka, despite the Swiss worldwide starting all 29 Premier League games for the club this season.

The veteran French boss, who took charge at Arsenal in 1996, added: "I left Ramsey out completely of the squad, left him at home, after everything he gave physically".

"That's always what you get when you don't win", he said.

"It was cagey after they got one goal back, they had the better of the second half, but we hung in there".
