Wenger praises Arsenal fans as end of an era looms

Gunners left to the most bad feasible beginning when Leroy Sane placed City in front after just 5 mins, working on to Kevin de Bruyne's pass to round David Ospina. Although Sergio Aguero immediately fired City back in front, Shkodran Mustafi restored parity eight minutes into the second half and Arsenal protected the point.

LONDON (AP) - After Arsenal twice conceded against Manchester City, Arsene Wenger was apprehensive. On the fans, Wenger added: "In very hard moments our fans, at 1-0 down and 2-1 down, could have turned against us but I think they were absolutely sensational to get us through those hard moments". "I can understand the fans that are unhappy with every defeat but the only way to have victory is to stick together with the fans and give absolutely everything until the end of the season, that's all we can do".

Wenger said that Laurent Koscielny was out of the West Ham game with the achilles injury that forced him off against City.

"If you listen to (Manchester City manager) Pep Guardiola, he said the other day that to achieve the top four in England is a trophy because it's so hard".

"Monreal said he touched the ball with his hand", said Guardiola, who added: "He also said to me that England, in these kind of situations, there are no whistles".

Guardiola said: "Yesterday was the first day he started to go to the pitch to run and walk". "We play against a team who is stable in what they do".

"At this point of the season and the position we're at, we know it's not good enough for us and it wouldn't be good for us to lose three points again". But I don't think many managers could have done what he has in the last 10 years.
