United Extend Lead Man Utd are seven points clear at the top of the Premier League again, with a game in-hand, after seeing off Newcastle 2-1. See all the outright betting here.

Arsene Wenger has dismissed reports linking him with the Manchester City job and claims that Cesc Fabregas could leave Emirates Stadium.

There had been speculation that the Frenchman was a leading contender to replace Mark Hughes at Eastlands in the summer.

Gunners skipper Fabregas admitted that Wenger’s presence at Arsenal was a key factor in his decision to remain at the club.

But Wenger, who has been in charge at Arsenal since September 1996, says he has no plans to leave his post and believes the Spain international will still be with Arsenal after he has left the club.

“I hope his future will last longer than mine because I think he can still be here in 10 years,” said Wenger.

“Cesc should be one of the bases of this club.

“I think the club should be built around personalities like Cesc and that is why I hope he will still be here.

“He is 22 years old in 2009 and at 32, he will still play.”

Wenger has seen his position come under scrutiny with the club out of the title race and battling with Aston Villa to secure the fourth UEFA Champions League berth.

The Gunners cut the gap on Villa to three points with their 3-1 success over West Brom in midweek while Martin O’Neill’s men lost 2-0 at Manchester City.

Wenger added: “I have never allowed anyone to question my commitment to this club, in the good and in the bad times, that has not changed in my mind.

“They [Man City] have a very good manager in Mark Hughes. He is doing a good job. They have to keep confidence in him.

“On my side, I am contracted until 2011 and until 2011 I do not envisage to go anywhere else.”
