Arsenal on Monday night suffered a shocking 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Goals from Andros Townsend, Yohan Cabaye and Luka Milivojevic saw Palace to their surprisingly comfortable win.

Wenger's current deal is set to expire at the end of the season, although the Gunners have reportedly offered their new manager a two-year contract extension.

Palace's first home win over Arsenal since 1979 left their London rivals in sixth place, seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester City.

Under the reign of Arsene Wenger, Arsenal Football Club have gone from undefeated Premier League champions in the 2003/'04 season, to losing five of their last nine competitive fixtures in all campaigns.

The Arsenal players faced taunts of "you're not fit to wear the shirt" after the game, from the club supporters but Wenger refused to admit that they gave up. Wenger has signed all these players so he's helped create this problem at the club.

2016-17 will surely see to that. and maybe even Wenger's job.

"He's saying "from kick-off we knew straight away they were more up for it".

Wilfried Zaha has described Crystal Palace's emphatic 3-0 win against Arsenal as a "massive confidence boost" in their bid for Premier League survival.

When asked about the unrest with the fans he responded, after grimacing at the mere mention: "You can understand that our fans are very unhappy".

To make matters worse, the 67-year-old must now navigate a tricky ending to the season with his side set to face Manchester United, Southampton, Stoke, Sunderland and Everton across the space of 14 days. "They are good going forward, but I think we made it easy for them".

This was, I was proudly told by my Palace supporting friend, the first time that Palace had beaten Arsenal at home since 1979. "From the start onwards, in the decisive moments of the game, they were sharper".

"Honestly, I'm disappointed tonight". The Anfield favourite urged the Emirates club not to accept a top-four finish as a success.

"We don't go out there to lose games, we try to work the best we can but tonight it just didn't happen".

"He has to go and they have to get someone else in".
