It's the Europa League or bust for Arsenal. Conte would push for that. Does it stop you from sleeping that my position is uncertain, or would not be certain, or is certain? No. However, the strongest weapon at his disposal is his tactical versatility.

It's only late February, so there will be more than a few twists and turns to this ongoing and played-out saga.

He continued: "My job is to focus on performing, my job is to perform and it is for other people to judge me".

American Stan Kroenke has been the majority shareholder of Arsenal since 2011 with a 66.6% stake; Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov holds 29.9%. The Evening Standard also report that he is keen to stay on. I don't think some of the players are to Arsenal's quality. The club have no choice but to seek out a replacement in the summer.

That said, Los Colchoneros have only been beaten once in La Liga this season - by Espanyol.

Wenger's men were completely outclassed by the Premier League leaders in the Carabao Cup final, leading to many pundits tearing into the club after the embarrassment.

"Who does that in this Arsenal team?"

23-year-old Hasan Ali was included in Pakistan's Test squad for the first time.

Who would you like to see as the next Arsenal manager? "The game on Thursday night is the important thing".

City will be without midfielder Fernandinho for Thursday's game at the Emirates Stadium after he strained a hamstring in the Carabao Cup final, and Raheem Sterling is unlikely to be fit in time because of a hamstring injury.

There, he managed an exodus of the club's talent whilst promoting excellent youth prospects such as Julian Weigl.

But that will be tested if the Gunners continue to tail off from their rivals, with a growing feeling Wenger has lost the ability to build a successful team.

Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has been linked with the Arsenal job, as has Napoli's Maurizio Sarri.

Bookmakers Neds aren't expecting Arsenal to reverse the trend this week, with the Gunners at $1.75 to defeat Manchester City.

Indeed, the fact Kroenke's son Josh -who sits on the Arsenal board and was at Wembley on Sunday -has moved to London to gain a greater understanding of the club is significant. There have been problems here, no doubt. Former striker Ian Wright also picked up on Arsenal's players walking around and said they were "insipid".

"When I was at Arsenal, you had characters in every corner of the dressing room".

Wenger no longer has total control over transfers at the club, with Sven Mislinstat arriving from Borussia Dortmund to overhaul the scouting department.
