Arsenal great Henry ready to step in

"We need to stay together, to fight together", he said. At the moment, my future is not my main worry. This is a collection of individuals that lack character and commitment to face their troubles and turn them into positives. It is hard to recover from what happened to us last week.

After Brighton defeat, Wenger added: "My worry is to get Arsenal winning football games".

Arsene Wenger has revealed that he opted to rest Aaron Ramsey for Arsenal's clash with Brighton on Sunday to reduce the risk of injury to the midfielder.

Former Gunners striker Henry, who is now working as an assistant to Belgium boss Roberto Martinez, remains a staunch supporter of the Frenchman.

"That gave them a lift going into the half-time talk, and they showed in phases throughout that second half the quality that they've got".

"You can say that yes, I think it had already gone before [the Brighton game]", he said. "What I am saying to you is again, we are talking about hypothetical thoughts".

However, a prosperous first decade, in which he lifted three Premier League titles, has been followed by a dearth of success, despite victories in three of the last four FA Cup finals.

Road team fans in the crowd were heard chanting, calling for the job of Arsenal's longtime manager Arsene Wenger during the defeat.

"I've never heard a co-commentator being so critical but Gary Neville was bang on the money".

"The big problem in a lot of the Arsenal games I have seen of late is how they are starting games".

- Pascal Gross has assisted Glenn Murray four times in the Premier League this season - only Cesar Azpilicueta (six for Alvaro Morata) and Kevin De Bruyne (five for Sergio Aguero) have assisted a player more.

A hat-trick of assists against Everton in early February suggested that perhaps Mkhitaryan had found his place, back alongside Aubameyang at Arsenal.

Arsène Wenger has accepted that a top-four finish is out of the equation, which means Arsenal need to win the Europa League to return to the Champions League.

The win took Brighton seven points clear of the bottom three.

"We're edging there but we're definitely not safe", he told Sky Sports.

Veteran French boss Wenger has been in charge at Arsenal since 1996 and it remains to be seen whether US-based owner Stan Kroenke has the stomach to sack a manager who has never given the slightest hint he will resign.
