Former Arsenal manager Terry Neill believes all is not lost in the race for the championship - and says now is the time for men to stand up and be counted.
"It's going to be tough from now onwards, but - and this point must be made - it isn't over yet by a long way," Neill, who led the club between 1976 and 1983, told Ham&High Sport's Arsenal correspondent, Jem Maidment.
"Arsene Wenger treats his players like grown-ups, they are trusted - and that is the right way to manage.
"What I believe must happen - and, indeed, believe will happen - is Arsene will now transfer the responsibility to his players. It is time for each individual in the squad to ask himself 'what am I going to do about it?'

"It is now down to them - they are the ones who cross the white line and they, ultimately, are the ones who can still play a big part in where the title goes.''
