Bookmakers disagree on Wenger's Arsenal future
Arsene Wenger's worst season in his 20-year reign at Arsenal is heading for a farcical conclusion as it seems the only people who believe the Frenchman should remain at the Emirates are those deciding his future.
The travelling support turned on the manager and squad during Monday's crushing 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace, but such is Wenger's overall power within the club that bookmakers are split on the chances of Arsenal's long-serving boss continuing at the helm next season.
Betway remain confident Wenger is staying on, offering 6-4 that Arsenal have a new manager in place, while BoyleSports are going 11-10 he remains in north London.
Bet365 and Hills just favour Wenger to stay and Coral edge towards him departing in a strange situation that seems to be damaging Arsenal's campaign. Paddy Power quote Wenger at 10-1 to be the next Premier League manager to leave his position.
The Gunners sit sixth, seven points off the Champions League qualification places with a game in hand on fourth-placed Manchester City, and they can be backed at 13-2 to finish in the top four.
Sixth is the most likely finishing outcome according to the betting - that eventuality is evens with bet365 - with a seventh-placed finish available at 6-1.
Star man Alexis Sanchez is 5-4 with Ladbrokes to leave the Emirates this summer regardless of Wenger decision on whether to sign a new contract with Max Allegri rated the 4-1 favourite in the betting to become Arsenal's next manager.
Inevitably most of the spotlight fell on Arsenal's latest collapse but it was a huge result for Palace in their bid for Premier League survival.
Sam Allardyce's side, who have a six-point buffer on 18th-placed Swansea and a game in hand over the Welsh outfit, drifted out to
25-1 to be relegated this season.
