Jamie Carragher opens up about Arsene Wenger's situation at Arsenal

Wenger's side suffered their heaviest league loss of a wretched season as goals from Andros Townsend, Yohan Cabaye and Luka Milivojevic blew away the lacklustre Gunners.

Wenger's situation at the Emirates Stadium remains unclear as the Frenchman is yet to announce whether he will be staying with the club at the end of the campaign.

After the right-back was criticised by Arsenal fans, the defender tweeted: "Morning run to recover from a hard night", accompanied with a picture of him running alongside a beach. "But what father would want his daughter to bring one of them home?"

"You have to win second balls and run the whole time against the big teams and when you get the chance you have to take it, and that's what made the difference".

"It is painful because I am still an Arsenal fan".

There was so much to admire about the first half of Wenger's 21 year reign at the club, most notably the Premier League title successes in 1998, 2002 and 2004.

"I think the weaknesses of Arsenal have been defensive, because they leave (Shkodran) Mustafi and Gabriel really exposed", he said. It is such an incredible club. The season is not finished. I think most people would say he should go out the door. It is up to them.

ARSENE WENGER'S Arsenal future hangs in the balance as the Gunners board appears split over whether or not to keep him, while also considering appointing a first ever director of football.

"What counts is how we perform on the pitch, the players and myself and I feel everyone is focused in the club to do it".

"We came with the desire to win the game, but in the decisive moments of the game Palace were sharper". Of course the confidence was high. But he admitted that the team's poor away form had affected their confidence after Palace went ahead.

Arsene Wenger admits that his Arsenal side were not defensively sound enough to handle Crystal Palace's attack.

It leaves Arsenal conscious that the current uncertainty is potentially damaging to result but simply feeling unable to confirm definite decisions. And to help us on the way to a great win. "The important thing was the three points".

In fairness, the majority of replies to Bellerin's tweet show their support - condemning what some of the Arsenal fans were chanting during Monday night's defeat.

"The biggest thing was letting the fans down tonight", Walcott said via his club's official website.

But after his display against Arsenal on Monday, there could be hope yet for the 26-year-old.
