London: Arsene Wenger has again insisted he will not leave Arsenal this summer despite supporters expected to vote by not attending today's game against West Brom. The Gunners have all but fallen out of the race for the EPL title and are now in a battle to secure a top-four finish and Champions League qualification.

Some reports claim more than 2,500 tickets remain on sale after a lack of interest from season ticket holders — but Wenger was unmoved when asked if recent results, as well as banners protesting at his continued role, could force him to reconsider his earlier announcement. "I do not want to come back on that, I respect always my contract," he said when asked about remaining in charge.
Wenger admits fans are allowed to make their own minds up in regards to attending the match. "Look, everybody is free to do what he wants with his season ticket," he said.
"We have to live with that. It's a Thursday night, so it's unusual. We just had a disappointing result at home, maybe that plays a part as well. First of all it's not experienced yet and we have to live with that. The emotional part in our game is always very high but changes very quickly as well. "Judgement from people is something we have to live with. It's down to us to change that belief."
