Tony Pulis reveals what Arsene Wenger told him about his future

The Daily Telegraph and Daily Mirror said Wenger will inform Arsenal's board he wants to extend his contract, which expires at the end of the season.

Arsene Wenger's future at Arsenal is the talking point of the Premier League at present, with so much negativity surrounding the club, he may be forced to stay. He has two games in hand on fourth-placed Liverpool, but the defeat in the West Midlands was the fourth in its past five English Premier League games.

Having organized street marches in a bid to force Wenger out of their club, the fans chose to kick it up a notch on Saturday.

Arsenal have denied claims that they have approached Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel.

The FA Cup is the only other competition which the Gunners are still competing in, preparing for a semi-final against Manchester City as they look to win the competition for the third time in four years. But I think now it is time for a change.

Wenger will want to leave on a high, but it will be more important to him to leave the club in a strong position, and that is far from what we feel like now. Arsenal were second-best in every department on Saturday bar one - possession.

The journalist and Arsenal fan told Adrian Durham and Darren Gough on Drivetime: "This is the guy who just spent £35m on Mustafi and Xhaka, right?" Pulis had a more detailed explanation of their set-piece failings: "They mark [with] five players across the six-yard box and have two players who try and block your runners". You focus on your job, no matter what people think.

Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy, whose goals powered Leicester to the title last season, scored either side of Robert Huth's header at the Olympic Stadium.

Speaking after the game, Wenger said he had made up his mind about his future and would make his intentions public "very soon".
