Newcastle defeat 'story of our season', says Wenger

Share

Newcastle's latest victory came at the expense of Arsenal at St James' Park on Sunday, and the result led to some Gunners fans demanding Benitez replace Wenger.

Off the pace in terms of a Champions League place, salvation for Wenger and the club could come in the shape of the Europa League, with the victor handed a spot in Europe's top club competition for next season. No, the opposite of joy for supporters is nihilism.

The architect of Wenger's downfall on this occasion was Rafa Benitez, a manager that was tasked with keeping Newcastle in the Premier League on a shoestring budget and a slightly-above-Championship-level squad.

As far as Arsenal are concerned, the Wenger era is running on fumes and has been for some time. Mustafi had a great start to life as an Arsenal player, initially rejuvenating the back four and forming a good partnership with Laurent Koscielny. This year, they'll not only likely finish no higher than sixth, but they're also only two points ahead of Burnley.

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy has identified Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez as the flawless replacement for Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

Paul Merson on Talksport was asked on Monday about the possibility of Benitez taking over at the Emirates this summer, and seemed to turn his nose up at the idea. We don't do these mistakes - the team mistakes - when we play at home.

Arsenal fans have been calling for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette to be paired together in attack at every opportunity, and in the 14th minute the reason why became clear as the pair linked up to open the scoring.

One glance at Shkodran Mustafi's performances this season alone should be enough to convince anyone that Arsenal are sorely lacking in defensive organisation.

"The Premier League has again decided not to go for VAR and I believe that is a very, very bad decision".

Arsene Wenger has always been at the helm of a sinking ship at Arsenal, with his stubbornness to adapt his style of play drawing criticism from all quarters.

Just imagine City winning nothing but the odd FA Cup over the next 10 years, failing to challenge for the Champions League at the same time, yet Guardiola remaining in charge because the football in 2017-18 was so good?
