Arsene Wenger's future at Arsenal uncertain

Arsene WengerArsene Wenger has yet to put pen to paper and sign a new deal at Arsenal, which is a worrying sign for supporters as the Frenchman's contract expires at the end of the season. The 64-year-old may have given his word that he will stay at the Emirates but if the Gunners fail to finish in the top-4 then he may reconsider his options, with the likes of Jurgen Klopp, Roberto Martinez and Dragon Stojkovic touted as possible successors in the Next Arsenal Manager Market.

Wenger recently hit the 1000th match landmark in charge of Arsenal, although the occasion proved to be one to forget as his side suffered a 6-0 thrashing by title rivals Chelsea. The defeat, combined with their recent 2-2 draw with Swansea, has subsequently ruptured the club's chances of winning their first league title in a decade.

With six games remaining the Gunners are seven points adrift of league leaders Liverpool, five off 2nd-placed Chelsea, and three away from Man City, who have two games in hand. It would take a phenomenal swing for the north Londoners to win the title, which is reflected in their long odds of 150/1 with Paddy Power.

Arsenal's dip in form means their main concern will be finishing in the top-4 for the 18th consecutive season. Five wins on the trot for 5th placed Everton (who have played a game less, means there are now only four points separating the teams, who clash in a pivotal fixture at Goodison Park on Sunday.

However, Arsenal do still have the chance to hoist their first trophy since 2005, with the club the hot favourites to win the FA Cup. The Gunners take on defending champions Wigan in the semi-finals on Saturday 12th April at Wembley, and a win would set up a Final against either Hull or Sheffield United, which they will definitely fancy.
