Clarke believes that the section of Arsenal fans calling for the head of Wenger are the noisy minority.
“Most people at Arsenal would say he has done a great job there,’’ he said. “If he has a season that is a little bit more disappointing than other seasons, then surely they are going to stick by him and see it through.
“Yes, there’s a chance they won’t qualify for the Champions League, but that also applies to big clubs like Chelsea and Spurs as well.
“Liverpool won’t make it and Everton have been up there all year, it’s going to be difficult for them to get there.
“You’ve got a lot of big teams who spend a lot of money and want to finish in the top four but not everyone can.”
