Arsene Wenger's future to be decided later this week

Arsene Wenger's future is expected to be decided on Wednesday

Arsenal became the most successful club in the 154-year FA Cup history after lifting the trophy for a record 13th time with a victory over recently crowned English Premier League champions Chelsea 2-1 here on Saturday.

Midfielder Ramsey, however, has made it clear he wants Wenger to stay and highlighted the Frenchman's switch to a three-man defence late in the season as the key to Arsenal's FA Cup glory. "I could feel that the trust of the team and of the coaching staff is vital in those moments when you struggle and when you are out". If people want me out, they want me out, I can accept that.He added: "The cup is hugely popular in every single country"."It's absolutely fantastic".

The forward has one year left on his current contract but Wenger could lose him on a free transfer next season if he doesn't cash in on him now.

"You have to say it couldn't have gone much better for us".

"I was nearly forgotten and that makes me stronger", Mertesacker said.

Asked if delivering the FA Cup would be a flawless way to say goodbye having been at the club almost 21 years, Wenger replied: "There is no ideal way".

Referee Anthony Taylor consulted the linesman before awarding the goal to Arsenal. They didn't start with the intensity that was needed for the game and were never really able to get it out as Arsenal's momentum, combined with a great desire to win kept them at bay.

"I've played until the end of my contract, which is today basically".

Chelsea - who trailed 1-0 to Alexis Sanchez's controversial opener - looked down and out when Victor Moses was sent off on 68 minutes after picking up a second yellow card for diving.

"Just let me enjoy tonight". Arsenal could have scored two or three more goals in the first stanza against an out-of-sorts Chelsea outfit, but they were unable to bury their chances. "Now it's important to understand this and find the right solution because don't forget we weren't the champions and now we start next season as the champions".
