Walcott: 'Hard work starts now after letting Arsenal fans down'

The Eagles moved six points clear of the relegation zone with a resounding win against the Gunners, with goals from Andros Townsend, Yohan Cabaye and Luka Milivojevic helping Palace to a fifth win in their last six games.

Large sections of Arsenal's support ended the night with a chorus of "Arsene Wenger, we want you to go" and "you're not fit to wear the shirt" - with protests against the 67-year-old likely to ramp up. And he again batted away questions about his future after the game, saying he was "not in the mood" to discuss it.

Arsene Wenger attempts to underplay Arsenal's abysmal performance against Crystal Palace, citing only their lack of scoring.

"I understand our fans are disappointed and we all are deeply tonight".

"I think it will be very hard certainly", he said.

"What father would want his daughter to bring one of them home?" It's not the right moment to analyse the game, we had a lot of the ball and possession, but they won the decisive duels and they were stronger, especially Benteke.

Flamini said: "It is painful because I am still an Arsenal fan".

Here are four urgent changes that need to made if they are to haul their way back into Champions League qualification positions. It is such an unbelievable club.

I think we were all of the belief that we were going to kick on from a couple of positive results, believing that our bad run was behind us, but we have given all our rivals the biggest boost in the race for the top four. Palace just wanted it more. It is up to them.

Kroenke is also physically present for monthly board meetings and, while he regards Wenger as one of the finest coaches he has ever met across any sport, he is well aware both of the anger among fans and the team's awful recent form.

He added: "Arsenal didn't have a shot on target in the second half and our defensive solidarity gives us the platform to win football matches".

Flamini has spent two different spells with the Gunners, making 246 appearances, and he has acknowledged that he does not like seeing his former team struggle for results.

However, 11 years later, he's Arsenal's captain for a must-win game. Of course the confidence was high. "They conceded a goal and it was not easy to come back".
