Arsenal are now entering the difficult situation as they are at the tipping point with manager Arsene Wenger due to the drop in attendances at the Emirates Stadium in recent matches.
Wenger, who still has one year left on the contract at the Emirates Stadium, is currently under pressure due to his side’s poor form this season.

But Chris Sutton – the pundit on BBC Sport – believes the board need to think about sacking the Frenchman to make fans back on Stadium.
“Is that the tipping point?” Sutton told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“The fact that the Emirates, it has been empty. It has. I went to the Watford game, nobody there.”

“If you’re the owners, and we’re talking about a money-making exercise, then they will be looking at that situation and ‘how are we going to get these people to come back?’”
“Arsenal fans have given up.”
This season is expected to be Arsène Wenger’s last in charge of Arsenal, regardless of if the club qualify for the CL by winning the Europa League or not, with Raul Sanllehi, Sven Mislintat & Ivan Gazidis working on a succession plan to replace the Frenchman.
