Gael Clichy backs under-fire Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger

Arsenal equalised through Theo Walcott, before Shkodran Mustafi's second-half header cancelled out Sergio Aguero's strike, but the point leaves the Londoners in sixth on 51 points, seven behind City who now occupy the final Champions League qualifying berth.

Theo Walcott covered a spell of Arsenal's stress to clamber house an equalizer 5 mins prior to the break - however they got on terms for just 2 mins prior to Sergio Aguero's effective goal placed City back ahead.

"For old people retirement is dying", added Wenger, speaking before Sunday's Premier League match at home to Manchester City.

"Despite all that's happened on the fans front, I felt our fans were fantastic today", Wenger told reporters.

Despite starting the game slow and on the back foot, Arsenal came from behind twice to earn a well deserved draw at the Emirates. Mathematically, today was not the best operation for either team, but we'll start thinking about mathematics when they're confident again.

The result kept Arsenal seven points below City, who occupy the fourth and final Champions League qualifying berth, but they retain a game in hand.

Wenger remains under pressure to maintain his post as Arsenal boss. On the fans, Wenger added: "In very hard moments our fans, at 1-0 down and 2-1 down, could have turned against us but I think they were absolutely sensational to get us through those hard moments".

Arsenal, yet to win an English Premier League (EPL) title since the 2003-04 season, are now languishing sixth in the standings.

About 1,000 Arsenal fans joined an anti-Wenger march before the game, the biggest such protests against the Frenchman.

The gist of their argument seems to be that Arsenal can still hold onto Alexis Sanchez, if Wenger leaves. He'll help get rid of all those fools who play at two miles an hour in midfield.

"On top of that, we lost Koscielny at half-time".

City manager Pep Guardiola was incensed on the sidelines.

Guardiola said the full-back even admitted after the match that he had committed a foul, but referee Andre Marriner waved away the appeals. I don't know how long I am here but I love the club and will do my best.

He said: "For Chelsea, the focus they have is to win the title". I lead with the values I think are important in life.
