Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger 'determined to put things right' after Palace loss

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger 'determined to put things right' after Palace loss

Under-fire Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger admits he's a anxious man following his side's shock 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace on Monday night.

"I saw Arsene. Of course everyone is disappointed".

Arsenal are now placed sixth and struggling to keep their record intact.

Sam Allardyce's team are fighting for their Premier League survival and before Monday night's game at Selhurst Park they had won four of their last five games - only Tottenham and Leicester had better form in the last five games.

Arsenal now face lowly Middlesbrough in the league next Monday before an FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City. Their Champions Trophy qualification is at risk now.

"Arsene Wenger, we want you to go", came the cry from the Arsenal faithful.

Palace led through Andros Townsend's close-range finish, doubling their lead when Yohan Cabaye's shot looped in.

Arsene Wenger attempts to underplay Arsenal's abysmal performance against Crystal Palace, citing only their lack of scoring.

I think we were all of the belief that we were going to kick on from a couple of positive results, believing that our bad run was behind us, but we have given all our rivals the biggest boost in the race for the top four.

Wenger has already faced pre-match protests from fans who want him to leave the club but speaking after another damaging defeat, Arsenal's seventh in their last 12 games in all competitions, he would still not be drawn into announcing his intentions.

"We are in a hard position". It's very worrying and disappointing the way we lost the game.

Wenger is regarded as Arsenal's most successive manager ever, but his reputation has become tarnished in recent seasons after his failure to win major silverware.

"This is my third game at home and my third win and I'm very happy".

"Tonight the worry is not me, it's the fact we lost a big game and that's a big worry. That's all I can say", he added. Alexis Sanchez does more running so he's seen as a player who is giving his all in the Arsenal jersey, but in truth he's probably running after the ball he just gave away to the opposition yet again.
