Arsene Wenger maintains that questions about his future aren’t hurting his players’ performance, which begs what is making Arsenal look so poor.

The Gunners were baffled by Crystal Palace on Monday, as Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend made Arsenal’s back line look poor time after time.

And Wenger didn’t want to answer questions about his future, deflecting to the small picture before the big one.

From the BBC:

“Every defeat is a big worry. I’ve managed over 1,100 games for Arsenal and we’re not used to losing like that. It’s a big worry. Unfortunately it is like that and we have to respond very quickly and not accept it.

“I’m disappointed and determined to put things right. Tonight the worry is not me, it’s the fact we lost a big game and that’s a big worry.”

Arsenal remains three points back of sixth place Manchester United and seven back of the Top Four. The Gunners have played one less game than fourth place Man City.
