Harry: Arsene will never be sacked

Harry Redknapp admits he could never see Arsenal sacking Arsene Wenger and has backed the Frenchman to drag Tottenham's north London rivals back in to the title race.

Following the summer sales of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri, Arsenal have struggled this term, winning just two out of their opening six Barclays Premier League games. Defeats to Liverpool, Blackburn and a humiliating 8-2 hammering at Manchester United left the Gunners lingering above the relegation zone.

Some fans have questioned whether it is time for a new man at the helm, but Redknapp thinks the criticism aimed at the Frenchman is unfair and expects his opposite number in Sunday's north London derby to remain in his post for some time. He said: "I don't ever see it happening. I don't see him going. It's not a possibility."

He added: "He is a top manager. Look at his record. It's fantastic.

"To go through a season unbeaten - what an achievement.

"Lots of managers have bad times. They come in and then they never have good times.

"He is having a bit of a dip, but he will come out of that.

"The season has only just started. It certainly wouldn't help Arsenal (if he was sacked)

"I don't think it's ever an issue that they would sack him but he is a top manager and they know they are well off."

Arsenal currently languish 13th in the table with the joint-second worst goal difference in the Barclays Premier League.
