Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was left shocked after being the subject of abuse from supporters following his side's 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace this past weekend. 

This has been reported by the Mirror, who claim that angry supporters near Wenger's Arsenal dug-out turned nasty and yelled abuse at the experienced French manager. 

It has been a topsy-turvy period for Wenger, who hasn't guided his team to a Premier League title since 2004.

The Gunners secured back-to-back FA Cup trophies in the past two seasons but look set to miss out on a trophy this term after a failed title charge. 

Arsenal are all but out of title reckoning, leaving north London rivals Tottenham as Leicester City's only real challenger for the prestigious honour. 

Opportunity missed 

With the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City struggling, this season represented the Gunners' best chance since 2004 of claiming league success, but they have well and truly failed to come to prominence. 

It's not exactly surprising, then, that things have turned sour at the Emirates. Sunday's draw to lowly Crystal Palace was just another setback for Wenger, who is under increasing pressure in north London. 

Opinion now appears to be split as to whether Wenger is the right man to take the club forward, which has led to him being on the end of a great deal of criticism recently. 

In fact, the Mirror go on to report that furious fans were heard telling Wenger to f*** off after the Palace clash. 

One witness said, as per the Mirror: “He cannot have not been aware of it. It was very close, personal and nasty. It’s some of the worst that people have ever seen.”

Arsenal atmosphere 

The feel good factor at Arsenal has disappeared and there appears to be a worrying trend at the club right now. The atmosphere is not what it once was and there is now, understandably, a lack of belief that Wenger can deliver another title for the club before his retirement. 

As mentioned, this season was a huge opportunity for the club, but they have watched the likes of Spurs and Leicester overtake them. On paper, the Gunners may well have the most talented team in the division, but something isn't quite right in the ranks. 

Mistakes have been made along the way, but will Wenger be handed another season in the pursuit of redemption? 

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