Wenger the Frenchman has come under increasing pressure from fans with the Gunners title hopes in tatters after a disappointing run of results left the club 11 points behind Premier League leaders Leicester City with a game in hand.

However, Wenger is adamant he will not be leaving the Emirates and remains committed to the club. Arsene Wenger insists he has ‘no doubt’ he will remain Arsenal manager next season
Asked if there were any doubts he would be Arsenal boss next season, Wenger exclusively told beIN Sports: ‘I have no doubt, no, because I am committed. When I do something I do it 100 per cent. I am always committed to give my best as long as I am at the club.’
Wenger, who is approaching two decades in the Arsenal hot seat, admitted criticism from supporters is ‘not very welcome’.
Fans of the north London club are restless after the Gunners lost two consecutive matches – away at Manchester United and at home to Swansea – before a 2-2 with north London rivals Tottenham saw Wenger’s side fall away from the leading pack.
Arsenal are third in the table after recovering from the slump to beat Everton 2-0 at Goodison Park but appear to have too much to do to claim a first title since 2004.
Look you give your best,’ he said. ‘I think the criticism during the season is not very welcome when you fight for the championship; especially after the game against Tottenham, where we were unlucky.’
Despite the unrest from the stands, Wenger is not fazed by the discontent among fans and said: ‘I don’t worry too much about all the rest, what people say. All the rest is judgement, opinions, and that is linked with beliefs from the last results, our last disappointment,our last happiness.
‘In my job you focus on what is important, to perform. I believe in life it’s very important that you focus on what you are appointed for. I am appointed to perform and do the best for my club. It’s all I focus on. My future is my future,I don’t master that more than you.’
Arsenal have won three Premier League titles and six FA Cups during Wenger’s time in charge but had a barren run from 2005 until 2014.
After falling at the last 16 stage in the Champions League for six straight seasons and while struggling on the domestic front, too, some fans feel the club is need of a change of management. Wenger, though, feels he is giving his best to bring success to the club.
‘I have my conscience,’ said Wenger, who turns 67 in October. ‘What is most important is that I give my best every day I work for the club I love. ‘If I can share that love with the supporters it’s even better. But at the end of the day I want to make sure I give my best.’
