Victory was rich vindication for Wenger, whose Arsenal future is due to be decided in a board meeting on Tuesday, and allowed him to salvage something from the most hard season of his 21-year tenure.

Ramsey said: "Of course, I want him to stay at club". He is reported to have been offered a two-year contract and while dissent against him has mounted this season, the stirring nature of his side's win will surely have won back some of his team's disgruntled fans.

While Wenger has done little to curb the endless rounds of speculation, he admits that the matter should have been cleared up long before supporter protests were sparked. "I'm here for whatever the team needs and I have shown that during the season".
