Arsene Wenger has told Arsenal fans to do their job and get behind his team.

The Frenchman has come in for criticism of late and was verbally abused by fans at a train station after the 3-2 defeat by Stoke City last weekend.

But Wenger insisted that he is unaffected by the criticism and called on supporters to stand by his team.

“What is in the word supporter? Support. It says what it says,” said Wenger, whose side host Newcastle on Saturday.

“I don’t expect anything but if you will look at the history of Arsenal and what we have achieved in the last 18 years and we have moved forward and that what is what we want to continue to do.

“I have managed in 180 Champions League games. How many Champions League games did Arsenal play before?

“That is not my problem [if they don’t like me]. My problem is to win football games.

“I am not a politician who has a poll every week to see if you support me. I am paid to win games. My sense is to focus on my job.

“Honestly you don’t think I will find 20 people who say that you are rubbish? Do they represent the majority of people? I don’t know but you have to win your football games, that’s all.”
