Arsenal will announce the outcome of talks with Arsene Wenger on Wednesday afternoon amid reports he will sign a new two-year contract.

Wenger and club owner Stan Kroenke met on Monday to determine the Frenchman's future, with the decision relayed to directors at a Tuesday board meeting.

Wenger's stock has fallen in the eyes of Arsenal fans as the team have struggled at times this season, failing to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in 20 years.

Conte was offering a defence for the player, who was shown the red card during the Emirates FA Cup final between Chelsea and Arsenal.

"I've played until the end of my contract, which is today basically".

Just four minutes had been been played when the striker blocked a Chelsea clearance - seemingly with his hands - and burst through to put his team in the lead.

Moses was dismissed for a second booking in Chelsea's 2-1 defeat at Wembley, after a fall in the box on 68 minutes that referee Anthony Taylor judged to be simulation. I don't think they're going to be anywhere near the title.

"You always worry when you are a goal down and it was a game full of surprises".

With no Champions League football to offer to potential new recruits, Wenger stills face a tough task to win the Premier League for the first time since 2004.

Wenger's future has been the subject of fierce debate for most of the season and he admitted after the FA Cup final the uncertainty had had an impact on the season.

Wenger implied after the Chelsea win he would be happy to stay on for another season.

It was expected the 32-year-old would endure a hard afternoon against the likes of Diego Costa and Eden Hazard, but instead Mertesacker was at the top of the game, leading Wenger to single him out for individual praise.

Wenger added: "Once the game starts and you are a fan, you stand behind the team, that is what I have not accepted this season and I will never accept it". "If he doesn't run to the ball, I can go out and claim the ball but now because he runs I stop and then Sanchez takes advantage".
