Arsène Wenger: I have enough experience to turn things around

Brighton pile the pressure on Wenger as Arsenal lose again

Brighton are the only team in history to lose every game against the "Big 6" this season.

Winning the Europa League seems to be the Gunners' last remaining hope of finishing in the top four this season.

According to The Mirror, Arsenal have drawn up a four-man shortlist to replace Wenger in the summer that includes Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers, Monaco's Leonardo Jardim, Germany's Joachim Low and Manchester City assistant manager, Mikel Arteta.

An overwhelming majority voted against him doing so with just seven per cent backing him to stay and five per cent saying they were undecided.

Petr Cech has been waiting to get his milestone 200th clean sheet since December.

The early lead gave Brighton confidence. Since Sam Allardyce took over, things have been incredibly inconsistent for the Toffees. Koscielny's wayward pass was sent out wide to Gross, and his curling cross from the right was headed down and beneath the body of Cech by Murray.

Bernardo Silva continued City's inexorable march to the title with a well-worked goal in the 46th minute, moving Pep Guardiola's men to 78 points, 18 clear of second-placed Liverpool. The loss against Brighton was Arsenal's third in a row and their eighth loss in all competitions since the turn of the year.

Chelsea got through that first half, only to concede within 33 seconds of the second half when David Silva crossed for Bernardo Silva to force in a finish at the far post. Former Gunner Ray Parlour simply said: "My God this is hard to watch".

The closing stages of the game saw the continuation of the Gunners' lacklustre movement. We need two teams to collapse and I don't see that happening.

Take nothing away from Brighton - they were great. Carlo Ancelloti, Luis Enrique, Peter Bosz and Thomas Tuchel are some of the high profile managers who are free at the moment and it will make sense for Arsenal to go after one of them. It's not good enough.

Arsenal fared little better against the Premier League leaders in an immediate rematch at Emirates Stadium, with Wenger facing a barrage of abuse in the wake of two disjointed displays.

"Even he, in the short time he's been at Arsenal, has been affected by the mood". If Arsene Wenger was manager of the Toffees, they wouldn't be in such a position.
