Arsene Wenger to stay at Arsenal

Arsene WengerArsene Wenger will sign a new deal at the Emirates this summer, which is widely expected to be in the region of two extra years. The 62-year-old Frenchman's current contract expires at the end of the season but after Sunday’s 1-0 victory over West Brom English football’s longest-serving manager assured supporters that he will not be leaving his beloved North London club.

Everton's defeat at home to Man City on the Saturday meant that the Gunners secured a top-4 finish for the 17th consecutive time under Wenger. However, despite the promise of Champions League football once again next season, there was a bitter sweet feel to the achievement as the club had previously been sitting top of the table back in January.

Arsenal's failure to step it up a notch in the big games ultimately cost them dear, which is reflected in heavy defeats to the three teams above them; Chelsea (6-0), Man City (6-3) and Liverpool (5-1). Their Champions League campaign was also brought to an end in the last-16 for the fourth season in succession, while they were dumped out in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup.

However, On May 17 Arsenal have the chance to end their nine-year trophy drought when they lock horns with Hull City in the FA Cup Final. The Gunners have infamously not won a trophy since the 2005 edition of the famous trophy, but they now have an excellent opportunity to finally end years of hurt and hoist the coveted cup at Wembley. Wenger's men are the red hot 4/9 favourites with Bet365 to win the match (in 90 minutes), while Hull can be backed at 6/1 to come out on top in their first Final appearance.
