The manager and the Arsenal board are set for a review of Wenger’s performance at the end of the campaign, the first year of a two-season deal.
Wenger has shown no indication that he is prepared to leave the club as he prepares for his 22nd season in charge and appears to have weathered the worst of a storm that may have compelled the board into making a change, a thrilling 3-2 triumph over Southampton taking Arsenal’s win streak to six in a row after losing eight between the turn of the year and March 4.
Asked whether he was spoilt for choice in forward areas after squad players Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi starred in the Emirates win, Wenger told Standard Sport:“In some aspects of the game there is no need to buy more players at that level, because we have young strikers as well, promising strikers.
“But we’ll see [about] that at the end of the season.”
Wenger’s defence certainly gave the impression it needed improving in an insipid display that made a Southampton frontline averaging less than a goal a game appear to be the most formidable of attacking forces.
