Paul Merson believes that Arsene Wenger should leave Arsenal at the end of the season if the Gunners lose the Premier League title to arch rivals Tottenham or Leicester.

 
The Emirates Stadium outfit are five points behind Leicester, and three points behind second-placed Spurs, with 11 games to play, and Merson believes Wenger should lose his job if he cannot guide his team to the summit, particularly as he did not sign any senior outfield players last summer.
 
'If Man[chester] City don't win the league and Tottenham or Leicester do then Arsene Wenger has to go,' he said.
 
'If you're sitting there telling those fans – loyal Arsenal fans – that they don't need any new players at the start of the season and then you don't win the league in front of Leicester or Tottenham then I don't see how you can justify it,' he added.
 
'If Man City win the league he can turn around and say 'they've got all the money in the world and can go and buy whoever they want, so would whoever I bought have made much difference?'.
 
'But if Leicester or Tottenham win the league after he said they didn't need any players then I don't see how he can keep his job.
 
Merson played under manager Wenger regularly during the 1996-1997 season in which Arsenal finished third but then left the club for relegated Middlesbrough in a £4.5million deal after Wenger offered him just a two-year contract.
 
'If Leicester or Tottenham win the title then I just don't see how he can keep his job.'
 
Wenger's men take on Swansea on Wednesday before a crucial derby against Spurs on Saturday in one of the biggest games of the 66-year-old's 20-year tenure at Arsenal.
