West Brom game 'vital' as Wenger makes top-four admission

'The Mugabe of Arsenal': Fan compares Wenger to Zimbabwean autocrat

"We are in the semi-final of the FA Cup, we have an opportunity to do that".

Arsenal will be made to sweat on the fitness of Alex Oxlade Chamberlain who faces a late test before kick-off. Elneny has joined in again so, apart from long-term injuries, everybody should be available.

"For us it's vital, of course", Wenger said. "Our job is to do as well as we can until the end of the season". This season has been competitive with six very good teams and it is shaping up to be the most exciting contest for the top four in a long time.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that while the introduction of technology and other rule changes may benefit the sport in certain cases there is a real danger that football could become a "stop-and-go game". There have been a growing number of fan protests focusing on Arsene Wenger's future, while a number of key players have been linked with summer moves away from the club.

The fan said: "I used to live in Zimbabwe and I've watched Robert Mugabe ruin the country, and Wenger is doing the same".

A footnote added: "Michael's recommendation: West Brom Double chance (draw or win) 11/10".


The Frenchman has received heavy criticism in recent weeks following Arsenal's Champions League demolition at the hands of Bayern Munich as well as underwhelming Premier League showings that have left them five points adrift of the top four.

Arsenal legend Paul Merson has described his former side's upcoming trip to West Bromwich Albion as a potential banana skin. So overall that's our targets.

"They are at home, playing Arsenal, and this is what the fans turn up for week in, week out".

James Morrison has found the back of the net in two of his last three Premier League games against Arsenal at The Hawthorns.

Alexis Sanchez has been directly involved in a league-high 26 goals in as many appearances this season, scoring 17 and providing nine assists.
