Wenger coy on Arsenal future

ARSENAL manager Arsene Wenger says he knows where his future lies but he's not telling anyone where that is.

The Gunners' fans continued to call for the veteran boss' head after their team slumped to a fourth loss in five English Premier League games - this time a 3-1 defeat at West Brom.

"I know what I do," Wenger said after there were protests in the stands and in the skies above the Hawthorns during and after the match.

"I don't worry, I know what I will do in my future so you will soon know."

The No Contract Wenger Out banner that trailed from a plane made it clear that some fans want the decision taken out of the Arsenal manager's hands.

Arsenal is now in fifth spot, 19 points behind leader Chelsea with hopes fading of reaching the top four and a Champions League place.

Chelsea pulled 13 points clear of Tottenham (which played overnight) in second following a 2-1 win at Stoke.

After Willian's free kick put Chelsea ahead, Jonathan Walters equalised from the penalty spot after being nudged by Gary Cahill.

The Chelsea defender made amends by scoring a late goal to seal a fifth successive win for the Blues.

Most of the other action involved teams fighting against relegation.

Leicester City made it three wins from three under Craig Shakespeare with a 3-2 win over West Ham at the London Stadium.

Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy, whose goals powered Leicester to the title last season, scored either side of Robert Huth's header.

Hull City came back down to Earth with a bump following last week's win over Swansea, going down 4-0 to in-form Everton.

Romelu Lukaku scored twice to push the Toffees sixth and leave the Tigers in the bottom three.

Crystal Palace continued its revival, winning a third straight league match defeating Watford 1-0 at home. An own goal by Troy Deeney allowed Palace to move four points above the relegation zone.

Sunderland remains bottom after a 0-0 draw with Burnley at the Stadium of Light.

The Black Cats missed a number of chances, while Burnley is still chasing its first away win of the season.

Bournemouth moved nine points clear of the relegation zone with a 2-0 home win over Swansea City.

The defeat was the Swans' fourth straight on the road and dropped them into 17th, one place and just three points above the relegation zone.
