When the Gunners took a 2-0 lead against Fulham last weekend, fans would have been forgiven for expecting Wenger's men to see out the game comfortably. Instead, they were treated to an unnecessary rollercoaster of a fixture which, finished in a 3-3 draw.
The London outfit's plight continues to puzzle observers, some of whom consider the team to be good enough to give the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea a run for their money. Although the Arsenal boss blamed a lack of "defensive urgenc" from his side, the problem lies with Wenger himself.
A team more often than not takes its cues from its manager and the Frenchman has cut a defeated figure along the sidelines in recent games. Looking weary and fed up with the squad's performance, Wenger's inability to turn things around could be an indication that the 63-year old has taken the Gunners as far as he possibly can. As manager of a club like Arsenal, Wenger cannot afford to fail in his attempt to bring out the best in his players, but he appears to be struggling to do just that.
