You forget quickly how good you are - Wenger acknowledges Arsenal confidence crisis

Arsene Wenger

GETTY Arsene Wenger is under pressure as Arsenal boss

The Gunners progressed to the last-16 despite that defeat at Emirates Stadium, earning a trip to face Italian giants AC Milan at San Siro on Thursday.

Inevitably, The Sun's claims of a Hector Bellerin and Arsene Wenger spat have made their way to the Catalan media.

Wenger finds himself under substantial pressure with Arsenal having slumped to sixth in the Premier League and looking increasingly likely to miss out on the Champions League again.

Arsenal have lost their last four matches in all competitions, and away from home (if you include the EFL Cup final drubbing against Manchester City) they have lost a staggering 11 times this season in all competitions. It's a group of players in dire need of fresh impetus, just as Milan were before Gattuso took charge.

"It's not the easiest time for the club, but we are here to help, do our best, and put Arsenal on the level that it was before".

Those who are questioning the confusing and far from transparent ownership dealings at Milan will nearly certainly be the subject of envy from Arsenal fans.

A run of four consecutive defeats in all competitions - including a pair of humiliating 3-0 losses on the trot to Manchester City - has knocked the daylights out of the Gunners.

"The player has responsibility on the pitch and the boss has responsibility too" said Koscielny.

Mikel Arteta is not an overwhelmingly popular candidate to replace Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager, if fan reaction on Twitter is anything to go by.

"We have a saying over at Arsenal, victory through harmony", Kroenke recently told the Woj Podcast. I think it is a good opportunity.

The Gunners have long appeared to pay little attention to the supporters' wishes-Wenger would have been relieved of his duties years ago if they did-but this could be the year they finally take notice.

"This poll of Arsenal fans shows the overwhelming view is that Arsene Wenger should leave the club this summer", said AST spokesman Nigel Phillips, as revealed by Evening Standard.
