Arsene Wenger should finally leave Arsenal if he fails to win the Premier League title this season.
The Gunners have not won the country’s biggest prize since 2004, but top the table after back-to-back wins over Bournemouth and Newcastle.
With the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea all struggling for consistency, Wenger will never have a better chance to win the crown and should step aside if he does not win the trophy he craves the most.

Barring the embarrassing 4-0 defeat to Southampton on Boxing Day, Arsenal have been in a rich vein of form with the likes of Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud spearheading their title assault.
They have won 13 of their first 20 games and currently top the league standings, two points clear of Leicester City.

Their convincing victory over Manuel Pellegrini’s City at the Emirates last month was a sign of their growing prowess and came less than two months after they put Louis van Gaal’s United to the sword in north London.
The Gunners have to win the title with their rivals all failing to match the standards set by Wenger’s exciting outfit.
Leicester City are second to the Londoners but, despite their impressive first-half of the season form, few expect them to still be in the top four when the season ends in May.
Pellegrini’s men continue to look irresistible one match and lacklustre the next, and the ongoing injury struggles of key duo Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero are denting their bid to regain the title they surrendered to Chelsea last season.
Van Gaal’s United have only won one of the last seven league games and, with the Dutchman’s methods still failing to yield rewards, join Chelsea in being out of the title race already.
Given the difficulties of their rivals, and the way his squad are clicking so seamlessly, there are no excuses for Wenger if he does not deliver the league crown this time around.
With Pep Guardiola still yet to decide his next move, the Gunners could look to steal a march on their rivals and lure the Bayern Munich manager to the capital as a replacement.
That could then prompt Wenger into taking on a director of football role, similar to what Sir Alex Ferguson did when he retired in 2013.
