Wenger's side however sit sixth, 13 points adrift of north London rivals Tottenham in fourth and the Frenchman is believed to need to win the Europa League to salvage the season and his job.

Thierry Henry has admitted that he would happily inherit the reins at Arsenal if asked to take on the "challenge" of succeeding Arsene Wenger. It increases the pressure for sure. "Some ligament damage", Wenger told a news conference.

"He's a man with enormous experience".

"He's near the end, whereas I've only just started. I know it's not going to be easy, but we're trying, and doing our best". Do you understand what I mean?

Taking everything into consideration, I think that AC Milan will win this game.

"If I want to last for such a long time something's got to calm me down, but I would like to build something here like he has".

AC Milan will take on Arsenal in the first leg of the Europa League tie. They have reached the final of the Coppa Italia (they knocked out a very good Lazio team), and they have won their last six matches in all competitions without conceding a single goal.

However, according to reports in The Sun, Arsenal's stars are strongly opposed to the appointment of Arteta, with some said to be unwilling to play under their former teammate.

The 22-year-old has been carrying the injury for some time and has been playing through the pain in order to try and help the team get back to winning ways during what's been a hard period for the club. When you go through a hard patch, uncertainty before the game is the quality of the performance we can give.

"We have a saying over at Arsenal, victory through harmony", Kroenke recently told the Woj Podcast. Another option is Mikel Arteta who is succeeding with Pep Guardiola's Manchester City side, while coaching staff roles for the likes of Dennis Bergkamp, Robert Pires and Martin Keown surely make sense at a time when Arsenal look devoid of creativity, defensive nous and the ability to score.

He will have to be forced out, and we'll see how the club board now responds to the results of this poll, if they respond at all.
