European league: How it could work

European league: How it could work

Former Arsenal captain Gilberto Silva said it will be hard to replace Arsene Wenger as the long-serving manager's 22-year reign comes to an end.

"A domestic league will certainly play Tuesday, Wednesday".

"It was not always easy to cut slowly with what you do every day and always you want to do it as well as you can and you don't want to forget to thank people who deserve it".

Think you can do better than Lawro?

But the Frenchman is predicting a massive overhaul of football in the near future, with Premier League fixtures relegated to midweek slots.

Huddersfield's most recent victory over Arsenal came at home in January 1971.

Arsenal wave goodbye to the long-serving gaffer this afternoon after he announced his decision to quit the Emirates last month.

They have won the FA Cup in three of the last four years, however.

Arsene Wenger believes it is inevitable that a European super league will soon be introduced - and that the Premier League will suffer as a result.

The final game of the season against Huddersfield also saw him win at his 48th different Premier League ground, moving one clear of long-time rival Sir Alex Ferguson.

And the 41-year-old lauded Wenger's impact at Arsenal, saying: "It's hard to replace a man like him and especially after all he has done, you can imagine the pressure for the next person".

The Gunners will settle for a sixth place finish in the Premier League which so far a disappointing season for the team but a memorable one following Wenger's departure. Yet these players have had more success against the Gunners than most.

Fittingly, it was a 38th minute goal from Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - the last major signing of the Wenger era - that ensured his manager went out on an uplifting note.

Smaller clubs, who now benefit from the riches that the Premier League has to offer, would be far worse off if it became a second-rate competition and the disparity between the have's and have not's would increase further.

Probability of away win: 55%.
