Arsene Wenger will attend an Arsenal board meeting created to resolve his future on Tuesday having already agreed the terms of a new two-year contract at the club as long ago as November, sources have told ESPN FC.
The Gunners icon has been vocal in his criticism of Arsenal this term, stating in March that Wenger's reign was imploding, while tweeting that the manager's "dressing room is lost".
The manager will likely be given his most generous budget yet, as the club looks to assure itself of a much stronger campaign, and without a place in Europe's elite competition, they may well push for a title challenge.
The fifth-placed finish was good enough only for Europa League qualification.
From Boxing Day, Arsenal won 15 and drew three in an 18-match span.
Sanchez opened the scoring after a solo run.
Arsenal captain Per Mertesacker raises the FA Cup.
Arsenal suffered a massive blow when Anelka was granted his wish to join Real Madrid for a reported £23million in 1999. "You can't do 35 years as a football manager if you think you are not the right man to do the job".
The signing of Henry proved to be a Wenger masterstroke, however. When they equalised, I thought; 'here we are.' That will give them momentum and we will feel guilty, they would take advantage and I was anxious at that stage.
Wenger agreed a two year deal with Stan Kroenke on Tuesday but will need to relay the decision to the board that will be expected to rubber-stamp Wenger's two year deal.
The Gunners were eliminated from the UEFA Champions League for the seventh consecutive season in the last 16. It came as they beat Hull City to win the 2014 FA Cup, before winning the trophy again the following year.
Wenger orchestrated the most famous season in Arsenal's history in 2003-04, as his "Invincibles" team went through the whole Premier League season without defeat to win the title. Arsenal could have easily won the game by a bigger scoreline of 3-1 or 4-1.
"But when a game starts you support your team". Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey was ruled offside but referee Antony Taylor overruled his assistant's decision and allowed Sanchez's goal.
