Arsene Wenger: The fallout if he was sacked

Arsenal suffered a second heavy defeat to Manchester City this week as they lost 3-0 at home

Arsenal began brightly on the South Coast with Mesut Ozil curling marginally over the crossbar from 20 yards out, but Brighton soon began to control proceedings in front of their own supporters.

Last season, Arsenal finished outside the top four for the first time in Wenger's career and he admitted that any chance of avoiding a repeat of that failure is now gone.

Arsene Wenger made three changes from Thursday's defeat to Man City with Aaron Ramsey rested and Hector Bellerin and Danny Welbeck benched.

Murray doubled Brighton's lead in the 27th minute.

Brighton's English defender Lewis Dunk (C) celebrates after scoring the opening goal of the English Premier League football match between Brighton and Hove Albion and Arsenal at the American Express Community Stadium in Brighton, southern England on March 4, 2018.

If you've ever been on his Twitter page it will come as no surprise to you that no one appears to be feeling the Gunners' sorrow more than Piers Morgan.

And it was 2-0 after 26 minutes as Arsenal gave away the simplest of goals.

Tiger Woods makes exciting announcement ahead of The Masters
During his last start, Woods flashed some form as he gained 4.5 strokes approaching-the-green and 3.4 strokes with the putter. He missed the cut at Riviera, where he never won even at his best. "I need to keep building on it", Woods said.

Instead, Arsenal were repeatedly pushed back with Cech forced to save well from Gross before Dunk wastefully headed over the bar.

Further individual errors would cost Arsenal later in the half as Laurent Koscielny's pass out of defence was misplaced and the Seagulls broke forward, with Gross crossing in for Murray to head home unmarked for his sixth goal in as many games, with Cech at fault once again.

"It is very hard, almost impossible now - we are too far behind", Wenger said of Arsenal's top-four prospects. And they would have been level if Koscielny's header had not come back off a post.

Arsenal, in the manner true to a team chasing a result, had all of the ball in the closing stages with Aubameyang coming the closest to salvaging a point for his side, but they could not find the equaliser they craved.

'You're thinking about it right now, who's going to be out there against Brighton and will say to the guys "we're going to do this, we're going to win that", who is going to be on the field being the guy helping the coach'.

Ozil had been quiet in the first half but a powerful run and shot brought a fine save from Mat Ryan before the German's threaded pass nearly let in Aubameyang for his second goal.
