Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, is worried by an apparent dip in the attendance at the Emirates stadium in recent weeks, but he said that he is confident the team will do "absolutely everything" to win back their fans.

Online media reports said there were thousands of empty seats on Sunday at the Arsenal's 3-0 Premier League win over Watford, despite the club selling 59,131 tickets, just short of their total capacity of 59,867 seats.

The stadium was emptier in the 3-0 league defeat by Manchester City earlier this month, although freezing conditions could have kept fans away on that day.

"Of course I worry because I want our fans to be behind our team and be happy," Wenger told Standard Sport. "But after what happened in that week (against City) it's a bit understandable.

"We are in a job where we have to get the fans on our side and do absolutely everything to achieve it. That's what we want to do."

Arsenal is sixth in the premier league, with 48 points and face an uphill task to qualify for next season's Champions League by finishing in the top four.

"I don't know how much negativity is out there. I focus on my job. I think I've shown in 22 years that I can do that, that I'll respect everyone's opinion and focus on my job with total commitment," Wenger said.

Their hopes of participating in Europe's elite competition next season hinge on winning the Europa League. Arsenal beat AC Milan 2-0 in the first leg of their last 16 clashes and take on the Italians at home on Thursday.
