Ozil's absence adds to beleaguered Wenger's woes as crisis engulfs Arsenal

West Bromwich Albion's Craig Dawson celebrates scoring their first goal

West Bromwich Albion's Craig Dawson celebrates scoring their first goal

After being down with flu and out of action in the last two games, Nigerian worldwide, Alex Iwobi, returned to action for Arsenal on Saturday in the English Premier League.

Confusion in the Arsenal box before West Brom score the second.

"It's not [the end of the world], not any more".

No announcement is expected before Arsenal's next game, a home tie against Manchester City, and the board are said to be coming up with the best way to sell news of Wenger's decision to stay on to an increasingly frustrated fanbase.

Arsenal were comprehensively outplayed and outmuscled by West Brom, who had failed to beat a side in the top seven all season, and now Wenger's position amongst the fans has become even weaker.

"I'll be surprised if he goes", the Welshman told the media when asked to speculate on Wenger's future.

Wenger will be desperate to see a turn around in form and cling onto any hopes of finishing in the top four by securing victory against Man City on April 2 after the worldwide break.

In better news Anthony Martial could make the squad after returning to training on Wednesday. "This is a very hard draw", he said. Middlesbrough made headlines this week by sacking manager Aitor Karanka after more than three years at the helm.

Arsenal sit fifth in the table and Wenger now faces a fight to maintain his record of always finishing in the top four in each of the 20 full seasons he has been at the helm.

"I don't think respect counts now". I would just like to point out a few from our latest game, although I am not trying to get away from the fact that Arsenal played poorly especially in our defending at set pieces.

"I know what I will do in my future, so you will soon know, very soon", he said.

"We have had hard games, but maybe our commitment hasn't been enough [lately]", Monreal said to Arsenal Player.

The misery continued when Danny Welbeck saw his header hit the crossbar, then Dawson scored a copy of his first goal with another header off a cornerkick in the 75th minute. I don't judge other people.

"He should not have played in the second half but he insisted that he wanted to", he said. Nevertheless, it's all pretty embarrassing to see that both have had to resort to these measures as surely it will only serve to arm their rivals with ammunition to taunt and mock them further...

"That's the worst Arsenal performance I've seen in a long, long time".
