With Arsenal likely to make changes for tomorrow’s game at Brighton, Mirror Sport quoted Wenger to say: “I am always ready for a fight. I have experienced these situations before and know what it takes.”
Wenger has made it clear he will not quit, but Arsenal are planning for the future with Manchester City coach Mikel Arteta, Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim and Celtic’s Brendan Rodgers among the contenders to replace him.
