Arsenal manager Wenger fires a top-four warning
LONDON: Arsene Wenger claims his savvy can help Arsenal pip Manchester City or Liverpool to a top four spot after victory at Southampton.
Second-half goals from Alexis Sanchez and substitute Olivier Giroud moved them three points behind fourth-place City and four behind Liverpool, with three to play.
“Experience can help,” Wenger said of his side’s chances of gatecrashing the places for next season’s Champions League.
“We know we can only win our games, and we had a strong performance on Sunday. “A strong performance today. So let’s just continue.”
The Frenchman, who is aiming to qualify for the Champions League for a 20th successive season, has Stoke, Sunderland and Everton still to play.
“I never questioned the character of my side,” a bullish Wenger insisted afterwards.
“It’s not because you lose games people expect you to win that you have no character.
“We went through a bad patch.” Daily Mail
