Arsenal legend believes Wenger should decide his own fate

Arsenal legend believes Wenger should decide his own fate

But, with Watford visiting the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, Wilshere reckons Arsenal can not afford to let their Premier League campaign close with a whimper. "We needed to find mental resources and not just accept because we are disappointed that we will lose the game".

"A lot of people spoke about us from the outside, but nobody knows what is inside in the team", Xhaka said.

But last night's 2-0 win in Milan left the Gunners with a glimmer of hope of qualifying for the Champions League next season through the Europa League. It was important to be together and to show the people on the outside that we are a team.

However, Arsenal are already out of top-four contention in the Premier League and Wenger indicated he may rest some players on Sunday ahead of the return leg against Milan next Thursday.

"I liked the atmosphere after the game, as the lads were disappointed and angry, eager to get going in training", said Gattuso in his Press conference.

Arsenal will face Watford at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The 29-year-old football player leads the list of midfielders by the number of effective actions in the second most important club tournament in Europe - 15 points (9 goals, 6 assists).

"We have to use this win, use it as sort of a target", Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere said. "If anyone tells you, you haven't got to prove anything to anyone, they are wrong. I think it can help us in this competition as well, if we keep the wins up and playing like this then we have a chance".

"It may have been becoming a coach myself that makes me feel differently".

Wenger said it saddens him that football these days is all about winning, and not about the values of the game. "When he adds that kind of aggression to his game he becomes suddenly a very unsafe striker".

With Arsenal sixth in the Premier League and Milan seventh in Serie A, the match was played in very different circumstances to their last clash six years ago.

Earlier this season, Watford came out the victors in a 2-1 win at Vicarage Road, with goals from Tom Cleverley and a late Deeney winner.
