And while fans went back and forth on whether Wenger was hinting that he was staying or leaving, reports have since suggested that it is the former.

He continued: "I think he is the greatest manager Arsenal have ever had".

But, will he sign it? "If you're asking me what Arsenal should or shouldn't do I'm the wrong person". But it would mean the players would know you're going to be the manager until the end of the season, they'd have to get on with it.

The Frenchman admitted after the 3-1 thumping that he has reached a decision and will announce it "very soon".

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

Many fans would think that, after such a awful result, that decision would be to leave the club.

Tony Pulis believes West Brom should be proud of their Premier League campaign regardless of what happens in the remaining nine matches.

Arsenal are in danger of sliding out of contention for a top-four finish and Wenger, whose last Premier League title was 13 years ago, said: "We have a big fight, I agree with you and it could be very hard now".

"Teams are making changes at the bottom of the league and I'm nearly sitting there thinking "I wish this doesn't work" because when it does, it gives others the confidence to change their manager", he added.

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, is set to continue at the club next season.

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.

That decision would be in spite of the fans' protests during their defeat against West From on Saturday lunchtime.

Banners were flown over the Hawthorns by supporters both for and against Wenger, and Neville, speaking on The Gary Neville Podcast, described the current situation at the club as painful to watch.

There were also plenty of "Wenger Out" banners emerging in the away end as Arsenal's top-four hopes took another blow.

In contrast, fans of Tottenham, their local rivals, were welcoming the idea of an extended Arsenal stay for Wenger. That could be identified with a second plane saying: "In Arsene We Trust".

But soon later a pro-Wenger message was displayed by another aircraft highlighting how divisive the issue has become.

Only time will tell whether Pulis' claim has any truth to it. "We've worked on that but you have to have someone who wants to head it and you have to have the quality that comes in".
