Result: Leicester City 0-0 Arsenal - 20th August 2016
I guess in the grand scheme of things that is a good result for Arsenal?! And might go a long way to demonstrating what a long and hard season they have ahead.
I would say time for Wenger to go? But to be honest I enjoy watching them struggle and disappoint every year so I want him to stay for as long as possible.

Four losses in five games for Arsenal.
Odds on Wenger being the next manager to leave his job must be pretty short. Looks very likely that he will not renew his contract
Sunderland will surely throw Moyes overboard before the end of the season and hope for a new manager boost in the last few games.
I agree though Wenger has to go. He's just ruining his legacy with every passing game now. It's a shame it's come to this he really should have left after the won the FA Cup. Looks like he's going to go out with no top 4 football and finishing below Tottenham for the first time in his career.
I don't think there is much point getting rid of Moyes, I think the board probably know they are doomed so may think Moyes is as good a man as any to bring them back up next year.
I can't see Wenger staying, I don't think he'll be sacked because of his legacy but I do think he'll walk at the end of the season. Although if they lose to Citeh next time out, it's not inconceivable that he may walk before the end of the season.
Sunderland have been in line for the chop for a good few years now, relegation is overdue. They'd be stupid to not give Moyes at least 6 months in the Championship. They may be better for the stability, having gone through a raft of managers in a short time.
I think Moyes is finished as a manager he hasn't been helped at Sunderland as the owner has stopped spending money but he hasn't helped his negative comments right from the start can't have been good for morale in the squad. Sunderland should've gone years ago that clubs rotten at the core they need relegation and to clear out the older players
There's also no certainty of what he can do in the championship been over 20 years since he was at that level.
On Wenger I'm convinced he's signed a new deal already the club will just wait for positive results before announcing it
