Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is hopeful of seeing out his current two-year contract at the Premier League club.

The club's inconsistent performance has led to suggestions that Wenger's 22-year reign may come to an end if the situation with the club does not get better at the end of the current season.

"I have always respected my contracts,'" Wenger told beIN Sports on Thursday.

"I would like to remind you I said no to all the biggest clubs in the world to respect my contract so that's always what I try to do.

"After that we have as well to accept in our job that the future is the future but for me that's to win the next game.

"We have to perform better in every single game and show until the end of the season a complete hunger to win every single game. That's what it's about for us."

Arsenal's only chance of winning a trophy this season is if they beat Manchester City in the EFL Cup final on February 25, 2018.

The Gunners still have the chance of Champions League qualification if they can emerge Champions of the Europa League just like their rivals, Manchester United did.

The eight-point gap to fourth-placed Chelsea in the Premier League appears unreachable with just 11 games left to play.

Arsenal under Wenger have won three Premier League titles, seven FA Cups and the same amount of community shields for the London club.

Wenger for the first time in many years failed to qualify for the Champions League as they finished fifth in the 2016\17 season.
