The Frenchman’s position at the Emirates has come under increasing doubt following Sunday afternoon’s 3-0 loss at rivals Everton, a result that has now put Champions League qualification out of Arsenal’s hands.

However Hughes, who played under Wenger during his time at the club, still feels he will remain in the capital next season: “I personally still think he will be there but it will be very interesting to see what happens in the coming games.

“I still think Arsenal’s games are very winnable. I know it went to the last game of last season [to qualify for the Champions League] and it might do that this time but I still think Arsene Wenger will be there next season.

“He does an excellent job and he is as frustrated as everyone. I can see it in his face, I can see it when he does interviews, I can see it at the side of the pitch, I can see it in his eyes.

“He’s normally the calmest man in the whole of the football club and one of the calmest men I’ve ever in football but every now and again I’ve seen him go and I could see it in his eyes today so it wouldn’t surprise me at all, especially at half-time, if a lot of harsh words were said.

“He’s still got that fire in the belly and I’m sure he’s watching the videos [of the game at Everton] over and over again because he’s meticulous like that.”
