Paul Merson wants Brendan Rodgers to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal

Paul Merson wants Brendan Rodgers to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal

"This team still have issues despite the 3-0 win at the weekend but they are slowly getting a response".

The 26-year-old was also absent as the Gunners beat AC Milan 2-0 at the San Siro in the first leg of their last-16 Europa League clash.

Such has been the reordering of things in recent years by Uefa, however, that an English team missing out might not actually be too badly out of pocket if they actually win the Europa League.

"Nothing is impossible. We're proving that with our own challenge for a place in the Champions League next season, so even a 2-0 defeat at home can be overturned".

In spite of many big-name managers been linked with the Emirates job, Paul Merson feels Brendan Rodgers should be the man to replace Arsene Wenger.

With that in mind, Mkhitaryan's presence at the Emirates Stadium might be seen as a good omen for Wenger.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has taken a swipe at Arsenal fans who boycotted their Premier League win over Watford while at the same time praised Gunners' fans who turned up to support them.

'Yes, he's on track, ' Wenger said when asked whether he was still optimistic about Lacazette's return date.

And it is that willingness to face potentially damaging situations that prompted him to issue a defiant challenge to Arsenal's furious fans this week.

"To do what they've done, people can say it's Scottish football and Celtic are head and shoulders above, but every team they played on that run treated it like a cup final, which is hard sometimes".

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is anxious by an apparent dip in attendance at the Emirates stadium in recent weeks but said he is confident the team will do "absolutely everything" to win back their fans.

"We have to keep working the same way and to score more goals".

Aubameyang is cup-tied despite not playing in the Europa League this season because Dortmund dropped from the Champions League into the Europa League, making him ineligible to represent his new club due to UEFA rules.
