WENGER IS REFUSING TO PANIC.

ASTON VILLA... 0 ARSENAL .......... 0 ARSENE WENGER has refused to press the panic button despite the growing gap between Arsenal and the Premier League pace-setters.

The Gunners looked lethargic and devoid of inspiration as they fought out a goalless draw at relegation-threatened Aston Villa on Saturday evening.

Arsenal qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League in midweek, but are losing ground in the battle to ensure an automatic place in next season's competition.

They are 10 points behind leaders Manchester United and six behind West Brom who were in the third automatic spot after Saturday's matches.Wenger said: "I would like to show what you (the media) wrote about us last year in September, October (when Arsenal were struggling).

"Why should we panic? We will worry about our next game and we will play that."
