Was Wenger’s job under-pressure after Liverpool defeat?

Stuart Pearce believes that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger ‘learned’ from the defeat at the hands of Liverpool, but that he would have ‘interchangeable’ had he not so swiftly turned it around.

Will Mesut Ozil walk back into Arsenal first-team?

Paul Merson has claimed that Mesut Ozil will struggle to hold down a regular starting role in Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal side this season.
