Wenger: Draw will help rebuild confidence

Thierry Henry doesn’t know who’s in charge at Arsenal

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.

"Overall I felt it was a mental test and you could see the team was touched on the confidence front", he told his post-match press conference at the Emirates Stadium.

"At 2-1 just before half time our fans could have turned against us but they were absolutely sensational today to help the team get through hard moments".

"That helped us come back to our natural fluency".

Arsenal, will host West Ham on Wednesday in a Premier League clash, and are now sixth in the table, seven points from Manchester City in fourth.

Against a background of supporter discontent over the form of Wenger's team as the Frenchman decides his future, with a protest outside the ground before kick-off urging the manager to leave his post, Arsenal were nervy from the start. In very hard moments in the game I felt that our fans - at 1-0 down, at 2-1 down - could have turned against us.

Arsenal have won only three of their last 10 games - two of which were FA Cup victories over non-league opposition in Sutton United and Lincoln City - and are lagging behind in the race for Champions League positions.

"I'm not in politics", said Wenger, who described the support of the fans on Sunday as outstanding.

Wenger is the longest serving manager now working in England's top division, having joined Arsenal in 1996.

Arsenal had to do without Laurent Koscielny in the second half after the defender suffered an injury to his Achilles and was replaced by Gabriel.

"Guardiola said to achieve top four is a trophy".

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 love to win football games".

"I know he is appreciated by the club board, a little less by the club's fans because there are no results". We played without discipline, being put under pressure.

"What is important. I think if I've shown one thing in my 20 years, it's that I care about Arsenal, I care about the next game, and I will continue to do that as long as I'm here".

The Gunners boss's current deal is set to expire at the end of the season but the north London club are reported to have offered the 67-year-old a new two-year contract extension.
