Same old Arsenal - Gunners exactly where they were last season

The under-fire Frenchman saw his side pick up a point against Manchester City on Sunday, but there remains plenty of opposition to his reign

Arsenal's 2-2 draw with Manchester City has left them with 51 points in total this season - exactly the same as this stage last year.

The Gunners have won exactly the same points total after 28 games in 2016/17, with exactly the same record of 15 wins, sixdraws and sevendefeats.

It is another season without growth from Arsene Wenger's men, who missed an opportunity against City to close on Champions League qualification.

After a campaign that started out promising much, the season petered out in all-too familiar fashion to spark further calls for Wenger to step down.

It appeared the same old Gunners that lack spine which took to the pitch on Sunday, as Leroy Sane scored inside the first five minutes with all too much ease.

Theo Walcott may have scored the equaliser but Sergio Aguero notched City's second 131 seconds later, meaning the Gunners' faithful took scant consolation from ShkodranMustafi's goal.

To be in exactly the same place as they were last season - floundering and in danger of missing out on Champions League football - could indeed be the straw that breaks the camel's back and sees Wenger walk this summer.
