Arsene Wenger has found himself under increasing pressure at Arsenal recently, but he has received the support of former player Ian Wright. 

During the Gunners' thumping 4-0 victory over Hull City in the FA Cup on Tuesday night, the club's former striker took to Twitter after fans unveiled a banner claiming that it was time for manager Arsene Wenger to move on. 

Wright defended his former boss, insisting that there was no need for the emergence of the banner during the tie with the Championship outfit.

After being told by one Arsenal fan that he was disrespecting the club's supporters by sticking up for Wenger, he responded in style. 

He tweeted: "I'll disrespect you all day long unfurling your muggy banner after a 4-0 win and plenty enough games left in the league."

Unsurprisingly, that led to further trolls on social media messaging him, with one fan in particular stating that the club's former striker doesn't have to pay the money that supporters have to. 

Wright is paying 

Wright had a glorious comeback to the message, however, claiming that he 'paid' after taking six injections to play in the 1994 FA Cup final. 

He tweeted: "I've paid with my fused ankle! 6 injections in a week to play 94 FA cup! Will limp forever! And I'd do it again."

But Wright's saved his best tweet for today. With yet another Arsenal fan subjecting him to abuse - this time claiming that he's only sticking up for Wenger because he's involved in sexual activity with him - the former England striker once again responded shrewdly. 

Sexual activity 

This time, Wright took the sarcastic approach, claiming that Wenger's 'not bad'...we will leave that one to your imagination.

Anyway, you can see the funny exchange here: 

Wenger struggles 

But is Wenger's time really running out in north London? Well, despite FA Cup success in the last couple of seasons, things haven't exactly gone to plan for all involved. 

This term, with the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea all struggling, appeared to be the club's best chance yet of ending their lengthy wait for the Premier League title. 

However, with just nine games to go, Arsenal find themselves eight points behind league leaders Leicester City. 

Ultimately, it appears that the north London outfit don't have the mental strength to secure the title, so it's not entirely surprising that they have been criticised recently. Without a win in three Premier League fixtures, Wenger's side have once again been throwing the title away. 

Clearly, Arsenal fans have had enough of their players failing to step up as the season approaches its latter stages, but is Wenger really to blame? Wright doesn't think so. 

Arsenal fans: should Wenger leave at the end of the season? Have your say below!
