Arsene Wenger has kept Arsenal fans guessing about whether or not he will remain the club's manager next season, but has reaffirmed his commitment to the job.

The Frenchman's future in North London is under scrutiny following a string of disappointing results which have left the Gunners out of Europe and out of the Premier League title race.

Wenger, whose current contract expires at the end of this season, has already made up his mind over whether or not he will sign an extension but is keeping tight-lipped about the decision.

Speaking ahead of Arsenal's game against Manchester City on Sunday, Wenger said there are still issues to resolve before he can divulge his future plans.

"Not today," he said when asked if he could reveal where he would be managing next season.

"But I am very clear in my mind. Do I stay two more years? My commitment will be the same. It does not influence my attitude.

"I've always been clear in my mind, it's a subject that is not sorted completely."

Wenger said his focus was on preparing his side for the visit of City, who sit seven points above Arsenal having played a game more, to the Emirates.

Depending on results elsewhere, defeat could leave The Gunners nine points adrift from the Champions League positions.

"The priority in life is always to focus on what's important and not to look for excuses," said Wenger.

"Our results aren't going the way we want, the priority for us is what happens on the pitch. Being professional is focusing on that, not finding excuses on the pitch."
