Arsene Wenger has backed Patrick Vieira to one day become Arsenal manager

The 68-year-old took over the reins at Arsenal back in 1996 but ever since signing his two-year contract extension last season, the Arsenal fans want him to leave by the end of this term and hire a new manager in order to take the club forward.

"It's not a big concern because our crowd is very solid at the moment", the Frenchman responded, alluding to a high renewal rate among season ticket holders for next season and the fact that every game has been sold out this season. "The biggest problem is not the number of fans who are behind the team".

"This weekend is preparation for (next) Thursday".

A low attendance is expected for Sunday's home game against West Ham United, with Arsenal's main priority in the league now to stay ahead of seventh-place Burnley.

"Mkhitaryan is running again".

Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan may return to Arsenal squad for the Europa League semi-final with Atletico Madrid, said Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger.

Not content with compounding Arsenal to yet another away defeat, Matt Ritchie then went on to custard pie Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the face in front of millions after the final whistle on Sunday. 'We miss him a lot. "Their current squad is experienced and they have a lot of quality players and a very important manager who has achieved a lot".

That is Arsenal's only remaining hope of qualifying for next season's Champions League.

"We've chose to subsidise tickets for the second leg, meaning our travelling fans will spend the same as those from Atletico".

"It will be a tough tie for us but it was always going to be that way at this stage of the competition, which is attritional and tough to win".

Premier League clubs voted against using VAR next season after the technology was trialled in cup games, and the league said on Wednesday it needs more evidence of a benefit to fans and clubs before making a decision on safe standing. 'The atmosphere is much better when people stand.

The Arsenal youngster's second loan spell at the Dutch second-tier outfit ends this season.
