Wenger: Sanchez's ankle in 'absolutely awful state'

Defeat at West Brom has only strengthened Arsene Wenger's desire to remain at Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claims that missing out on a place in the Champions League will not have a huge impact on his future.

According to the Daily Mirror, Wenger has told the board he wants to stay at the club. Wenger told him he meant to stay on after Arsenal's 3-1 defeat at The Hawthorns on Saturday.

"I'll be surprised if he goes", Pulis said after the game.

The Gunners have lost four out of their last five Premier League games, sit 19 points off leaders Chelsea and were humiliated in Europe by Bayern Munich again.

Fans have protested through the street at the last two home games, while a plane was hired to fly a banner over the Hawthorns at the weekend calling for him to leave.

It is understood that, contrary to reports from German newspaper Bild, Arsenal have not made an official approach to Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel and seem resolved to stand by Wenger. "It's more, it's not that", said the Arsenal boss.

The latest collapse further jeopardises the one constant under Wenger: Champions League qualification.

"It's a bad tackle and you see his ankle is in an absolutely awful state", he said.

Arsenal have not commented on the reports on Wenger's future.

"We hope we can win the cup and that Arsenal qualify for the Champions League".

"He stayed on but in the second half he was not himself so I chose to take him off".

It will not necessarily be linked with the top four because I've done that 20 times.

Arsenal had initially rallied after falling behind, levelling through Alexis Sanchez's close-range finish - the Chilean forward's 18th goal of the season.

Arsenal's two biggest players will enter the final year of their respective contracts this summer and it is looking more and more likely that they will agitate their way out of the Emirates Stadium.

"I believe we have to deal with that and you focus on your job, no matter what people think".
