Arsenal Fans Should Be Careful What They Wish For, Warns Gael Clichy

There is no indication over what caused the fight but it is a fractious time at the Emirates

When asked about the persistent rumours surrounding his future at Arsenal, Wenger was still ambiguous, but remained clear that he had made a decision.

Wenger has been in charge of Arsenal since 1997 but a section of the fans now want him to go after a string of poor results.

The Gunners had to fight back twice as Theo Walcott and Shkodran Mustafi equalised goals from Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero at Etihad Stadium.

A draw suited neither team.

Wenger insists his decision is made while Arsenal's board say the next move will be mutual - so a draw nearly summed up what seems to be the current inertia among the decision-makers.

He said: "Overall, we started with a high level of anxiety and we were punished straight away". The fluency of our game suffered. "Let's finish as strong as we can and show that we have some resilience, some quality and some mental spirit that we have shown against City".

The game was played at a frenetic pace at times with both sides desperate for a win. "We don't have too much time to prepare but we go back to Manchester now and recover and then come back to London".

"Despite all that happened, I felt our fans were fantastic", said the Frenchman, whose side entertain West Ham United on Wednesday.

The Swiss bank said Friday that the contacts took place a day earlier, emphasizing its "strategy of full client tax compliance". The leader of the tax probe into Credit Suisse Group AG (ADR) is the Netherlands' FIOD, which handles financial investigations.

Even in seasons when things haven't been going particularly well, there's nearly an inevitability about the Gunners finishing strongly enough to achieve what both Arsene Wenger and chief executive Ivan Gazidis have called the "minimum" for the club.

"I'm not sure. I do believe what he has done in the past is incredible". I didn't see any negative body language. "It's the way he is".

"Arsene Wenger has touched on the chance Mesut Ozil had and I might be being a bit harsh with three things here, but I'm going to say them anyway", he told Sky Sports.

But the manager said that the support he saw during Sunday's 2-2 draw with Manchester City was enough to convince him that the fans are still able to give the team the support it needs.

City certainly missed an excellent opportunity to capitalise on Arsenal's vulnerability as the visitors again paid the price for some sloppy defending.

Dropping two points could spell the end of City's title hopes, but Guardiola was more concerned about his side's lack of bravery on the ball. "We are professional football people". The draw is the least we needed today.

"If you want to play, you need this quality of pass", he said.
