Arsenal’s weaknesses were exposed once more this weekend as the London side lost 3-2 to Manchester United, and it appears the pressure on Arsene Wenger could prove enough to lead to his departure as Gunners boss this summer.
Wenger is just 9/2 to exit the club in the off-season, after a week which has seen his hopes for three trophies dealt major blows.
Defeat at Old Trafford, coupled with Leicester’s win against Norwich means Arsenal are five points behind the Foxes with 11 games to go in the Premier League, and having been title favourites across Christmas, the north Londoners are 11/4 third-favs for the league.
An FA Cup fifth round stalemate with Championship side Hull failed to win over the Emirates naysayers, while a 2-0 defeat at home to Barcelona in the Champions League all but ended European aspirations for another year.
This summer is set to see a whole host of managerial changes at the Premier League’s big clubs, with Pep Guardiola heading to Man City, Antonio Conte seemingly on the way to Chelsea, plus the endless murmuring of Jose Mourinho to Man United. With Jurgen Klopp already settling in at Liverpool, Arsenal fans must be feeling that if a change is to come, it should be this summer.
A Ladbrokes News spokesman said: “The ‘Wenger Out’ brigade are in full voice following defeat to Manchester United, and it’s a growing prospect that Arsenal could be seeking a new boss this summer.”
Wenger can ease some of the pressure by seeing off Swansea, who visit on Wednesday.
