Pressure mounts on Wenger after Arsenal capitulate to Palace

"Sometimes players have nights where nothing goes right".

The Gunners were humiliated at Selhurst Park, leaving them seven points off the top four and manager Arsene Wenger under more pressure to announce his future.

With eight games left there is time for Arsenal to turn it around but they still have to play rejuvenated Leicester, Manchester United, Everton, Southampton and Sunderland - as well as trips to Stoke and bitter rivals Tottenham.

It was the north London club's fourth straight away defeat where they have conceded three goals on every occasion.

Arsenal fans remain extremely unhappy at Wenger's continuing reign, which has seen the club stagnate after a number of seasons with limited success.

Arsenal now face lowly Middlesbrough in the league next Monday before an FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City.

But how do the Arsenal players get over such a devastating night?

"They make a consistent profit and for that reason they may stick with Arsene Wenger".

Flamini's comment about it being "just a matter of how they want it" resonated for reasons that he did not intend, because the absence of desire in the Arsenal performance was what damned them.

In fairness, the majority of replies to Bellerin's tweet show their support - condemning what some of the Arsenal fans were chanting during Monday night's defeat.

Wenger again stonewalled questions about his future, claiming it would be "inconvenient to speak about me".

"I'm deeply disappointed because the performance we produced was not good enough", Wenger told Arsenal.com.

"Tonight the worry is not me, it's the fact that we lost a big game and when you lose a big game it's a big worry". I feel everyone is focused in the club to do it. Perhaps that is more out of selfish desire for Arsenal to win one last title under the great man, however unlikely that may seem. "It had an impact on us after the second goal".

The Gunners lost three-nil to the Premier League strugglers, and the score line arguably flattered them because they could have lost by more.
