Arsene Wenger says he will not retire from management

Arsene Wenger says he will not retire from management

Arsenal's French manager Arsene Wenger, second left, sits with his reserve players during the English FA Cup fifth round soccer match between Arsenal and Sutton United at Gander Green Lane stadium in London, Monday, Feb. 20, 2017.

The performance against Bayern in Munich was one of the Gunners' worst under manager Arsene Wenger, and fans will expect a massive improvement.

We all love a good underdog story but come kick-off we could even see some of the Arsenal faithful routing for the non-league minnows in the hope of expediting another great run - that of their long-serving manager.

There will be no such privileges at Gander Green Lane where numerous 750 Arsenal fans lucky enough to have a ticket will, as you can see, not even get a seat.

Wolves enter the game on the back of their eighth home defeat of the Championship season after Wigan Athletic won 1-0 with a late goal on Tuesday.

Some poor play from David Ospina allowed Adam May a huge chance to draw things level in the dying minutes of the first half, but the Portsmouth loanee failed to get his shot on target as Arsenal escaped.

Deacon continued to pose a threat for Sutton and he went very close on 65 minutes with a thumping effort from almost 25 yards which crashed back off the Arsenal crossbar.

However, the Arsenal players need to be wary of the pitch and the different atmosphere.

They'll be playing on an artificial pitch in front of just 5,000 people.

With two serious knee injuries in the last two years, it is perhaps unsurprising to hear that Danny Welbeck won't take part in this FA Cup tie.

"Firstly, the pitch", said Wenger when asked what are the biggest dangers facing his team.

"He was older than I am today".

Arsenal are in fourth place in the Premier League table and 10 points adrift of current leaders Chelsea in the title race.

We have to deal with the media and our job is to and analyse with clarity what happened [against Bayern Munich].

"Look, ideally we would like to play on a normal pitch".

"I think if you see Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez on the team sheet, our chance doesn't come beyond nought".

The tackles were flying from the part-timers, and the plastic pitch made it hard for the Premier League giants to settle into a rhythm.

When the match begun Arsenal had to get used to a wet skiddy bouncy surface, which had been soaked through before kick-off, against a team far more used to it than them.
