Arsenal majority shareholder Stan Kroenke is flying in from the USA in a show of support to manager Arsene Wenger. The Telegraph says Kroenke, Arsenal's billionaire owner, will reaffirm his support for Wenger this week when he flies into London for a meeting with the club's manager and the rest of the board.

Saturday's 2-0 FA Cup defeat against Sunderland has effectively condemned Arsenal to another trophy-less season, but the message from Kroenke is that the club must now remain unified and focused on securing a 16th consecutive top-four finish.

The Arsenal directors will hold a regular board meeting on Thursday, with Kroenke and Wenger both due to attend.
