Ian Wright has warned the Arsenal players that the fans will be in uproar if Arsene Wenger’s side lose at Middlesbrough on Monday night.

The Gunners have lost their last four Premier League games on the road to leave the north London side’s top-four chances in tatters.

Arsenal suffered a 3-0 loss to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday night after losing at Chelsea, Liverpool and West Brom in recent months.

Wenger’s men are in sixth place in the Premier League table and seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester City in the race to secure a place in next season’s Champions League.

The Arsenal manager is coming under pressure with his contract set to expire at the end of the season, although the Gunners have offered the north London club a new two-year extension.

Speaking to The Sun Goals podcast about Arsenal’s trip to Middlesbrough on Monday night, Wright had a stark warning for Wenger’s players.

“If we lost to Middlesbrough, the pitch forks will be coming out. The fans will be storming the castle,” Wright said.
