Jamie Carragher has claimed that Arsenal’s players look like they want a change of manager at the end of the season.

Arsene Wenger has found himself under increasing pressure in recent weeks and his situation worsened on Monday night when they were beaten 3-0 by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

That result left Arsenal having won just two of their last eight Premier League games and with a top-four finish looking increasingly unlikely.

Wenger’s current Arsenal contract is due to expire in the summer and it remains to be seen whether the Frenchman will extend his stay at the club beyond the end of the season.

And Carragher has suggested that Wenger’s time at The Emirates could well be up at the end of the current campaign.

Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football after the loss to Palace, Carragher said: “People will always talk about Arsene Wenger and I don’t think the fans are split. I think more of them want change.

“It’s now looking like the players want change [too].”

Arsenal’s players must now dust themselves down as they prepare for their Premier League trip to Middlesbrough on Monday night.
