Under-fire Wenger finds a friend in Guardiola

"He has worked very hard this week".

The match at the Emirates is the first of two clashes between underperforming teams that hoped to challenge for the Premier League title but are now scrapping for a top-four finish and Champions League berth behind runaway leaders Chelsea.

Arsenal have lost six of their nine games in all competitions and although they have qualified for the FA Cup semi-finals, they are now out of the Champions League zone and are in serious danger of not qualifying for Europe's elite competition.

City has drawn its last two league games and also bowed out of the Champions League to Monaco this month.

"My commitment will be exactly the same all the time".

Bernstein, who quit City in March 2003, said: "For a period of time, a number of years, I was the man. I've always been very clear in my mind, but I think it's a subject that is not sorted completely out".

"He has over a year on his contract so it's not something that's an immediate concern for Arsenal football club".

"They are not top, ideal (fitness) but yes", he said when asked if De Bruyne and Zabaleta would feature.

"At the moment our results are not going the way they should, but we have to make sure the priority is what happens on the pitch".

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has called for the board to take action on Arsene Wenger's situation.

That remark came before back-to-back Premier League defeats to Everton and Manchester City that plunged Arsenal into a mid-season crisis that has prompted outright revolt from the majority of the club's fans against their long-serving manager.

There's only one team in London, so he is happy.

Wenger went on to insist the uncertainty over his future was not destabilizing the club, as he insisted mistakes on the field were not related to his own contract talks with Arsenal.

Wenger is keen to extend his stay, according to British media reports, but said his future at the club is far from certain.

"But I don't see anything negative (in Sanchez's comments)". He said he wants to win the championship. "I can understand that".

Vieira, who is now manager of New York City FC, understands the struggles his former boss is now facing at the Emirates Stadium but refused to nail his colours to the mast when pressed about whether Wenger should remain in the North London hotseat. "I think, if I created something, it is stability".

Goalkeeper Petr Cech, who limped off during Arsenal's loss at West Bromwich Albion this month, is expected to miss the next two games with calf injury.

Striker Lucas Perez will also sit out Sunday's match against third-placed Manchester City with a thigh problem.

A latest poll reflects how much work Wenger has to do to regain the support of Arsenal fans.
