Television pundit Jamie Redknapp has claimed the time for change has come at Arsenal after manager Arsene Wenger presided over a fourth successive defeat at Brighton.

The Gunners’ 2-1 loss at the AMEX Stadium, coupled with similar results against Ostersund and Manchester City twice inside the last 11 days, left sections of the travelling support in open revolt once again

Former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder Redknapp admitted the Frenchman must be on borrowed time.

He told Sky Sports: “Arsene must be questioning whether he can take this club on now; he must be thinking to himself, surely, anyone would do.

“When you have lost five out of the last seven in the Premier League, anybody else would be thinking, ‘I’m going to lose my job’.

“You’re not going to get in the top four again, this is the second year on the run – of course you would.

“I don’t like to see him under this pressure, but he’s had a great run at it and things aren’t turning now, they’re not going in his favour.

“The players are not good enough that they have signed. I think there needs to be a change.”

On Friday morning, Harry Redknapp (Jamie’s father) came on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast and conceded he would walk away if he was in Arsene Wenger’s shoes.

The former West Ham boss told talkSPORT a new manager could be the catalyst for a successful 2018/19 season.
