It has been another season of failure for Arsenal and their highly respected but under pressure manager Arsene Wenger.

After successive defeats, by AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League and Sunderland in the FA Cup, Arsenal realistically have only a top four place in the Barclays Premier League left to contend for this season.

Wenger has overseen some of the brightest moments in the club's proud history but a run of almost seven seasons without a trophy has taken its toll on the club's fans with some supporters even questioning the Frenchman's future at the helm.

To make matters worse, North London rivals Tottenham are enjoying their best every season under Harry Redknapp and are flying high in the league in third - a notable 10 points ahead of the Gunners.

Victory on Sunday against their London rivals could go some way into appeasing Gunners fans but anything else than a win may not be enough to silence the dissenting voices.
