Defeat to Bayern Munich saw fans take to the street to protest the Frenchman's prolonged stay at the Emirates.

Speaking after Arsenal's FA Cup win over Lincoln City, Wenger said fans are being brainwhashed by what the pundits and analysts say.

He gave the example to Barcelona's now infamous win over PSG in the Champions League saying pundits who claimed the Catalans were outstanding 10 mins to the end of the game were those who also criticized them after they lost.

He said: “You can’t live in an isolated world. When you’re a footballer, even if you don’t read it you’re told what ­people think. You can’t live in a world where you can’t be influenced by ­anything.

“For example, I watched the last 20 minutes of PSG v Barca again. It’s ­interesting when you see all the conclusions that come out of the game.

“And the same people who spoke after the game said with 10 minutes to go that PSG was ­absolutely outstanding. Ten minutes later, they’re absolutely rubbish. People brainwash you with what they think is right.

“Get out of that heated ­atmosphere and look at things in an objective way. Sometimes it confirms what people say. Sometimes it doesn’t".

Wenger also joked that his experience in the game means he could delve into pundity and football analysis like many people.

“I managed about 2,000 games – I might know a ­little something about the game as well.”

Theo ­Walcott’s first half stoppage-time shot gave Arsenal the lead at the break agaonst Lincolm City.

The second half saw Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez, Luke Waterfall’s own goal and Aaron Ramsey score to give Arsenal the win over the National League visitors.
