Jamie Carragher opens up about Arsene Wenger's situation at Arsenal

The back-page headline in The Times, a riff on Palace's nickname, was "Eagles 3 Butterflies 0", while The Daily Telegraph said the result at Selhurst Park represented "humiliation".

The manager and the Arsenal board have now finalised details over a two-year contract extension and are ready to fly in the face of growing unrest by announcing the deal before the end of the season. And he again batted away questions about his future after the game, saying he was "not in the mood" to discuss it.

Even with the club lurching from one crisis to another, there is no appetite within the Arsenal hierarchy to tell Wenger he is no longer wanted as manager.

And now it seems the Gunners boss is losing support at boardroom level, with Emirates Stadium bosses divided on whether they want to him to stay beyond this season. But now the whole club looks a problem.

But, despite having his job on the line, Wenger found the time to join talkSPORT to EXCLUSIVELY* discuss his future and the Arsenal fans.

"Only about three per cent called for him to leave right now, so 78 per cent think it's time". We thought we'd got out of this little rough patch before.

"We're very disappointed in that dressing room, like the fans are as well because we've let them down tonight".

"Absolutely, it's definitely about winning trophies", Vyas added. More likely on current form is that they will lose the semi-final and not challenge to close the current seven-point gap to the top four Premier League positions. Are they going to stay anyway? "On the pitch you can see it and with the leadership from the top of the club".
