Arsène Wenger says the race to finish in the top four could go down to the final day of the season.

Arsenal are currently fourth in the Premier League, one point behind Chelsea and two ahead of Tottenham Hotspur, though both of those sides have a game in hand on Wenger’s team.

The boss is expecting a close run-in but believes his side’s best chance of securing Champions League football is to concentrate on themselves.

“The only way we can deal with the situation is to win our games,” he said.

“We won eight of the last nine and [then] had a draw against Everton, which can happen to anybody. I believe that we just want to keep that strong run going until the end. We know for us it is what's needed to be successful.

“I believe we will do it but it is down to our performances, it is down to us performing until the end, as we did recently.

"We bounced back from a very very difficult position but we still have a lot of work to do.”
