An overwhelming majority of voters in an Arsenal Supporters' Trust poll have called for long-serving manager Arsene Wenger to leave the club at the end of the season.

The Gunners' 2-1 reverse at the AMEX Stadium, coupled with similar results against Ostersund and Manchester City twice inside the last 11 days, left sections of the travelling support in open revolt once again.

The loss was Arsenal's tenth of the season, meaning the club have already lost more games this term than they did in all of the last campaign.

A group of Arsenal fans will lobby chief executive Ivan Gazidis this weekend in an attempt to persuade the club to replace Arsene Wenger this summer and announce his departure before the end of the season.

Asked by British reporters if he is the man to improve Arsenal after the defeat to Brighton, Wenger replied, "Yes, because I have done it before".

"It is a hard situation for us", he told DAZN.

"In the last two games especially we gave a lot and we were 3-0 down at half-time [to City on Thursday]".

The Gunners now sit sixth in the Premier League table with 8 points behind fifth placed Chelsea and 13 points behind fourth placed Tottenham.

"It's the first time I lost so many games on the trot in my life".

"It was cagey after they got one goal back, they had the better of the second half, but we hung in there". We have to be realistic, we need two teams to collapse to qualify for the Champions League, and I don't see that happening.

The goal triggered the first chants of "you're getting sacked in the morning" directed at Wenger from the home supporters but alarmingly for the manager, prompted little response from his side. Sometimes you have to admit that they are better or are in a better situation.

For the Seagulls, who face Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, victory meant they had beaten a top-six side for the first time this season.

"This is a tragedy and it really hurts me", said Conte, who coached Astori when he was in charge of Italy. Securing Champions League football through the top four is now highly improbable while you wouldn't back them to win the Europa League in this kind of form.
