Under pressure Arsenal boss Wenger vows to battle on as pressure builds

 

By Mark Mann-Bryans

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger called on his squad to "stay together" but he looked and sounded like a broken man after his side was battered 3-0 by Manchester City.

Goals from Bernardo Silva, David Silva and Leroy Sane steered classy City to a comfortable victory over Arsenal for the second time in five days. After beating the Gunners 3-0 in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, Pep Guardiola's men extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to 16 points at a half-full Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal had the opportunity to cut the deficit shortly after half-time but Ederson saved Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's penalty.

Calls are growing for Wenger to quit but he said: "We have to stay together."

When asked if he thinks he can turn the club around, he stated: "Of course."
