There may be a few more twists in the Arsene Wenger saga at Arsenal following a FA Cup semi-final win which has helped to turn opinion back in his favour.
The Frenchman has endured a testing 2016-17 campaign, with an inability to right recent wrongs in Premier League and Champions League leading to increased calls for him to step aside.
He is, however, still going strong some 20 years after his arrival in north London and has made it clear throughout the protests and probing questions that he will not back down without a fight.
His side have not shown too much of that quality as the pressure has mounted, but a 2-1 extra-time victory over Manchester City on Sunday has Arsenal back in the hunt for major silverware.
There is still plenty of work to be done by Wenger, with Premier League leaders Chelsea waiting in the FA Cup final and a top-four finish far from guaranteed, but he can count a little more support for now.
With the ‘Wenger Out’ campaign having taken on a life of its own at times, social media was awash with those eager to take an opposing stance following the Gunners’ win over City at Wembley.

Nice for Wenger the "fraud" to beat the "best manager in the world". Got his tactics spot on today. — Calum (@CalArsenal) April 23, 2017
Arsenal have done it! Win 2-1 extra time. Wenger's love affair with the FA Cup continues. A few knockers need to hang their heads in shame. — John Cross (@johncrossmirror) April 23, 2017

Not everybody was happy though...
7th in the League & Arsenal fans are going nuts with joy at reaching final of a 2nd tier trophy.
Shows how far we've fallen.
Get a grip. — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) April 23, 2017
