Arsenal struggled their way to victory against Middlesbrough in the Premier League last night. The first half was dominated by Middlesbrough and Arsenal only picked up pace in the later stages of the game, scoring a goal just before half time.
This lead was short lived as Middlesbrough equalised early in the second half putting Arsenal under a lot of pressure. Halfway through the second half Arsenal took the lead once again, setting the score in their favour with a comfortable and much needed 2-1 win. Wenger's woes continued as the hard-fought win against the Middlesbrough team, who lies second bottom of the log, was not convincing at all.
Questions continually arise about whether or not Wenger is fit to manage the Gunners. It seems as though the relationship between Wenger and his players are no longer as it once was. Arsenal is only sixth on the log with their Champions League spot further under jeopardy.
According to AFP, "Arsene Wenger has challenged his players to win every game between now and the end of the season to keep alive faint hopes of a top-four Premier League finish."
Wenger continued to say: "We were a bit over-cautious against Middlesbrough but hopefully the win over them will now give us more confidence."
With unhappy Arsenal fans and anxious football players, we are left wondering about the fate of Wenger's position at Arsenal.
