Martin Keown has warned Arsenal players that if they don’t show some spark in the end of season run in, they will be shown the exit, no matter how big a part of the team they think they are.
"Sometimes when you feel that it's all going wrong for you, that's when you stand up and be counted," the Arsenal legend said.
"Arsenal are going to have to do that between now and the end of the season - otherwise the league is going to slip out of their fingers.
"There has to be an overriding desire to want to go on and win something. But if the team are going to carry on coming second then they need to make changes somewhere."
Keown argues that spending more money at Arsenal is not necessarily the answer, though if it is, then Arsene Wenger is the most experienced and intelligent person to do it.
"I know from experience that Wenger invests a certain amount of time in you as a player and once he feels you are at the end of the line he gets someone else in to do the job.
"Arsene has educated all the fans with a great brand of football and how to behave - the club are proud they are in a very strong financial position.”
"However, if the players don't win the league this year, there will be more money ploughed in.
"If Arsene Wenger wants to spend the cash then he'll be able to do so, but whether that's the answer to the problem remains to be seen."
