Arsene Wenger reiterated his commitment to Arsenal after Robin van Persie hit a brace in the 2-1 win at Norwich as the Gunners recorded a fifth straight Barclays Premier League victory.

Reports in France suggested Wenger, who is in his 15th campaign at the helm and has two years of his current contract left to run, would review his position at the end of the season. However, following Saturday's battling victory at Carrow Road, which saw Arsenal close to within striking distance of the top four, Wenger moved to put the record straight.

The Arsenal manager, 62, said: "It was after a conversation where the journalist asked 'there would be no way at all you will ever leave this club'. I said the only way would be if I feel I did not deliver what I feel is expected from me. Then, if you love the club and feel you are below what people are expecting from you, that is the only way I would consider."
