Arsenal's Mesut Ozil disappointed against Crystal Palace

Jamie Carragher believes it is time for a change at Arsenal after Arsene Wenger's side lost 3-0 at Crystal Palace on Monday night.

Arsenal's latest defeat, their first at the hands of Palace since 1994, was also the first time the Gunners had conceded three goals in four consecutive away games for the first time in 88 years.

"Pathetic to see a once-proud victor like Wenger reduced to this losing limpet".

Arsenal are now placed sixth and struggling to keep their record intact.

The Gunners won a mere 21% of their tackles at Selhurst Park - down 18% on their Premier League season average. Arsenal's shocking surrender leaves them in sixth place, lagging seven points behind fourth placed Manchester City. Their Champions Trophy qualification is at risk now.

Arsenal Supporters' Trust announced that the club have said that no deal is on the table, despite reports to the contrary. Their goalkeeper (Wayne Hennessey) took the free-kicks from half-way, so it was up to us to combat that and win. When asked about finishing in the top four, he responded: "Very hard, certainly."I want the fans to support the team".

All throughout the season there have been reports linking the North London club with a host of Europe's best managers should Wenger depart, with the likes of Atletico Madrid's Diego Simeone and Max Allegri of Juventus two prime targets. "We have to respond very quickly and not accept it", he said.

"I don't think my players didn't want it, but we lost duels in decisive moments and that's how games are decided at this level", said Wenger. "We created quite risky situations but defensively I think we were exposed many times", admitted Wenger. "In the second half they were stronger than us but the second goal was unfortunate and the penalty killed our game".

Even when Bellerin and co. went over to the away end to applaud them for their support and to apologise for their display, they were roundly booed.

But how do the Arsenal players get over such a devastating night? "You could feel that it had an impact on us after the second goal tonight", Wenger said. "I don't say the players gave up".

Mesut Ozil gets most of the flak because it looks like he doesn't really care when he strolls around the pitch.
