The Gunners are in the midst of a genuine crisis and have lost eight of their last 13 games in all competitions.
Wenger has reportedly told his coaches that the club will have to sack him if they are to get rid of him before then, with the Frenchman hoping that the strength of his relationship with majority shareholder Stan Kroenke will keep him at the Emirates Stadium.
Janusz Michallik breaks down Arsenal's loss at Brighton and explains why it looks like Arsene Wenger's side have waved the white flag on this season.
"It is a hard situation for us", he told DAZN.
During the current run, Arsenal were outclassed by Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final having already seen their FA Cup defence end with defeat at Nottingham Forest in the third round.
Their miserable run has left them 13 points adrift of Tottenham in fourth place and Koscielny conceded it would be hard to overturn such a deficit.
"I don't believe that - I just believe that we have to remain positive in a negative environment and show that we have character and that we have leadership".
Wenger said he is focussing on doing his job when asked about stepping away from his post.
The veteran French boss, who took charge at Arsenal in 1996, added: "I left Ramsey out completely of the squad, left him at home, after everything he gave physically". Securing Champions League football through the top four is now highly improbable while you wouldn't back them to win the Europa League in this kind of form. You don't back down from a challenge, you always think that you can.
Sections of the away support chanted: "We want Wenger out" as Arsenal went 2-0 down in the first half, but defender Laurent Koscielny said the manager should not get all the blame.
