Arsenal star Jack Wilshere apologises to fans following Brighton defeat

"We dominated well in the second half but lacked a bit of "zip" to make the difference".

"It is very hard, almost impossible now, we are too far behind", the Frenchman said after Arsenal remained on 45 points, trailing north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in fourth by 13 points. "But, at the moment, we have different worries in how to come back to winning a game".

Wenger felt his side were "passive", "struggling for confidence" against Brighton and are "going through a tough time" as he acknowledged their hopes of finishing in the Champions League places were slim.

But what did we learn from the latest round of fixtures?

"Listen, we fight. We don't go into games with our heads down".

It was the fourth straight defeat suffered by Arsene Wenger's side and Sidwell slammed the current crop of stars for their attitude at the Amex Stadium.


Henry, who is working as an assistant to Belgium boss Roberto Martinez, remains a staunch supporter of the Frenchman. I don't know how but now we are in a bad situation and the results are not with us. I think it showed how far off the pace Arsenal have gone, everything just seems exhausted and stale. "What I am saying to you is again, we are talking about hypothetical thoughts".

On May 12 previous year, Chelsea lifted the Premier League title with two games to spare and would eventually finish the season seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham with Manchester City a further eight adrift.

After a miserable week for Arsenal, journalist Oliver Holt has claimed that Arsene Wenger's reign at Arsenal "exhausted" and his time as manager should be finally brought to an end. "You deserve better. That's all I have to say", he wrote on Twitter. Meanwhile, Wenger is in the firing line, and while it's understandable as he's responsible for what happens on the pitch, it seems a shame that a club like Arsenal, that has prided itself on its desire to do things the right way, is behaving in such a cowardly way.

Lewis Dunk and Glenn Murray capitalised on poor defending to put the hosts two goals ahead, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring a first-half consolation in a 2-1 loss.

One statistic in particular, though, will have Gunners fans furious following their loss to Brighton. However, five wins in nine league games - four of them at the Liberty Stadium - since have eased the Swans three points clear of the drop zone and given them every chance of survival.

Despite only arriving in November, Allardyce could lose his job this summer, and Everton are now being linked with a stunning move to keep Wenger in the Premier League.
