Arsenal slips up again in 2-1 loss at Brighton in EPL

"It is very hard, almost impossible now, we are too far behind", Wenger told the BBC when asked about Arsenal's top-four prospects.

The pressure on Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has intensified after his side slipped to a fourth successive defeat in all competitions with a 2-1 loss at Brighton and Hove Albion. Although his current contract with the club expires at the end of next season in 2019, many fans [VIDEO] and former players want to see the legendary coach depart the club in May of this year.

The Gunners are in the midst of an bad spell that has seen them lose eight games in 2018 and lose four in a row for the first time in 16 years.

Nearly at the stroke, he rolled into a follow up sentence with the confession: "I've never lost this many games on the trot". By bringing the Seagulls up to the Premier League with a direct passing style and holding their own, he has a team of spirited fighters.

Centre-half Lewis Dunk and striker Glenn Murray seized upon flimsy goalkeeping from Petr Cech to fire Brighton into a two-goal lead, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's strike shortly before half-time failed to spark a revival.

Wilberg also alleged that late a year ago , management deleted emails and other digital records of diversity requirements. Wilberg alleges he was sacked in retaliation for complaining to human resources about the company's hiring practices .

Arsenal's travails worsened on 26 minutes as Laurent Koscielny conceded cheap possession and Gross provided the ammunition for Murray, with Shkodran Mustafi out of position, to head through a hapless Cech. Even allowing for Burnley's 11-match winless run, the Clarets remain just five points behind Arsenal.

With a top four spot so far out of reach, the Europa League may represent Arsenal's best chance of qualifying for the Champions League next season.

There was criticism of Chelsea manager Antonio Conte's defensive tacics, but Guardiola said: "I never judge what the other guy does".

"We had difficulty to get going and we suffered a lot physically in the first half", Wenger said. However he tinkers with formation or team selection, not much seems to work. Tough, objective judgement as well. but when you struggle for confidence it's hard.

Europa League glory remains up for grabs to the Gunners, but they are set to face Italian giants AC Milan at the last-16 stage of that competition and the contrast in form between two continental rivals heading into that contest could not be more marked. To persist with the 68-year-old was a huge oversight by the club and sticking with a manager that can no longer inspire his players or provide the tactical quality to properly compete with the top-6 is setting the club back.
