Arsene Wenger insists he's still prepared to battle for his job at Arsenal and is determined as ever to turn things around.

Wenger's position at Emirates Stadium is under increasing pressure following successive 3-0 defeats to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup Final and Premier League.

The Frenchman has over one year left on his contract, but there is increasing speculation that the board will finally end their relationship with the coach who has been at the helm since 1996.

But Wenger said: "I’m always ready for a fight. I’m of course very disappointed but I’ve experienced these situations before.

"Do I feel I can get Arsenal out of this rut? Yes of course. I’ve faced difficult situations in my life and it helps to deal with that.

"Of course my desire is as strong as it ever was. I have the experience and desire to change things, to continue to help the team."

Arsenal's latest defeat to Manchester City means they are 10 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham, who occupy the last of the Champions League qualifying positions for next season's competition.

Winning the Europa League is now their best hope of playing in Europe's premier club competition in 2018-19.
