Cape Town - Newcastle United stunned Arsenal with a come-from-behind 2-1 win at St. James' Park on Sunday to massively improve their chances of Premier League survival.

Petr Cech has warned Arsenal they need to win all their remaining games if they are to climb into the Premier League's top five.

Newcastle started well with some early pressure on the Arsenal defence with Shkodran Mustafi forced to head behind a whipped in Jonjo Shelvey delivery. Even Bury, the first English club to relegated this season, have managed to do better than Arsenal on the road in league during this calendar year, claiming four points away from home since January 1.

At any other club, Wenger would not have lasted so long.

At times it is very very good but it is really an all or nothing thing now. Arsenal are said to have offered Wilshere a new contract, though it's reportedly £20,000 less than his current £110,000-a-week.

But those people, Wenger included, are living in fantasy land if they believe that the future can be like the past. No other in world football would put up with mediocrity and decline for so long, but there are no still guarantees that a change will be made in the summer.

A game where Newcastle surrendered much of the possession but Martin Dubravka had few saves to make, with in fact NUFC increasingly threatening on the counter-attack as the game went on - actually having four efforts on target to Arsenal's three over the course of the 90 minutes.

Trophy droughts and devastating performances have become pertinent in the last couple of seasons since Arsenal last held the Premier League title in 2004.

One reason why this has happened could be because of Arsene Wenger.

City have just been crowned Premier League champions for the third time.

It did look promising for the Gunners at one stage after Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsène Wenger's men the lead in the 14th minute with a good finish at the end of a well-worked move.

The Gunners' strong home record-they've won 13 of 17 league matches at the Emirates this season-has still not been enough to stave off the empty seats, likely because of the situation they find themselves in due to their poor away form. The alternative does not bear thinking about.
