Paul Merson: How Jurgen Klopp can guide Liverpool to Premier League title

No, the opposite of joy for supporters is nihilism.

Arsenal's board are concerned that the decline in attendance figures could affect the club commercially, believing that the visual resentment between the fans and the manager could be detrimental to the club as a whole, with some board members believing Wenger must leave at the end of the season in order to resolve the issue. Overall, Arsenal seem to drop further and further behind the pack.

The Gunners' strong home record-they've won 13 of 17 league matches at the Emirates this season-has still not been enough to stave off the empty seats, likely because of the situation they find themselves in due to their poor away form.

"There are people that talk about 'young coaches and we give them time", but when a club wants to win quickly what they want is results and results with people who have been here for a while and know what the Premier League is and how hard it can be'.

To put it bluntly, Arsenal are the only side in all four English divisions to have not picked up a single away point in 2018 so perhaps not being is a good place to start. Are they not in desperate need of a general to deliver some home truths about their soft underbelly and actually start to look as though they have some semblance of a game plan again?

Arsenal's current season is beyond any hope or fix.

"I said before about the commitment, everybody was working so hard from day one, every training session, every game, sometimes you were lucky, sometimes you were unlucky but in the end I think they deserved to stay in the Premier League", Benitez said after the match.

Arsenal missed out on a top four finish for the first time under Wenger last term and it looks as though the north London side are going to finish outside the Champions League qualification spots for the second campaign running.

At times it is very very good but it is really an all or nothing thing now. They might like to think otherwise, but they are not above Benitez.

It didn't take long for the television pundits to identify one of Arsenal's biggest flaws in the 2-1 loss to Newcastle on Sunday.
