Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson believes Arsene Wenger is still in charge of Arsenal because there's no one better to replace him in north London, reports ESPN.

Wenger recently celebrated 19 years in charge of the Gunners but has come in for recent criticism for failing to deliver the Premier League title in over a decade. 

Arsenal last secured title success back in 2004, but Ferguson has backed his former rival for sticking 'with what he believes in'.

The ex-Red Devils boss stated: "It's just like me if I hadn't progressed the club after the '94 team or the '99 team I would maybe having the same problems as Arsene, but he's stayed with his conviction, he's stayed with what he believes in.

"When all the pressure - I'm thinking about the pressure I said to a few of my friends - who are they going to get to replace Arsene Wenger, you know, who are they going to get who is better than Arsene Wenger?

"And that's why they don't do [sack him], that's why they've stuck by him."

Title possible

Ultimately, it has all been a bit of a struggle for Wenger at the Emirates for some time. However, things appear to be on the up for the club in their pursuit of success. 

FA Cup silverware in the past two years has brought the feel-good factor back to the club and there now appears to be a feeling that the Gunners can challenge for the title under the guidance of Wenger once again. 

With the likes of Santi Cazorla, Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Co. plying their trade in north London, Arsenal could finally end their title drought in England's elite division. 

One thing is for sure, after beating Manchester United before the international break, Wenger's side will be determined to secure all three points against Watford next Saturday.
