The long serving boss has come under pressure as their tile challenge has waned.

Aaron Ramsey insists Arsenal are fully behind manager Arsene Wenger, in comments to Goal.

The French boss has come under increased pressure this season, with some Arsenal fans calling for his head.

That has come after they have fallen away in the title race, having topped the league table at the end of 2015.

They are currently 11 points behind leaders Leicester City, with many believing the Gunners have missed their chance at ending their title drought.

Wenger has stood firm in the face of the criticism, and Ramsey has backed him to do so this time around, saying the squad are all behind him.

"People are entitled to their opinions," he told Goal.

"He's [Wenger[ had criticism in the past but has dealt with it and I'm sure he will deal with this. He's done tremendous for this club and has won many things. We all believe in him as players."

This is certainly not the first time that Wenger has come under pressure during his long reign at the Emirates.

It appears he has no desire to end it either, with the club also don’t seem interested in a change in management any time soon.

If that is the case, both must now turn their attention to ending the season on a high, starting with a win over Watford this weekend.

They will certainly be keen to do just that, with the Hornets having knocked out Wenger’s side of the FA Cup in the middle of March.
