Arsene Wenger insists Arsenal's collapse this season won't lead to a mass exodus of star players such as Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie.

Wenger's side squandered a glorious chance to end their wait for a first trophy since 2005 as they lost the League Cup final against Birmingham, then crashed out of the Champions League to Barcelona and the FA Cup against Manchester United.

Even more painful for Wenger was Arsenal's failure to take their opportunities in the Premier League title race and the Gunners go into Sunday's clash with leaders United knowing a game once billed as a title decider now means little to his team.

With Arsenal still looking weak in several departments, it would be no surprise if Fabregas, Van Persie and Samir Nasri spent some time considering their futures in the close-season.
