With six teams going for four Champions League places, it is set to be a fierce run-in to the Premier League season.

Arsène Wenger knows his side have it all to do, but says every team is suffering from the lack of clarity in the fixture list this term.

“It’s a strange championship because there’s no continuity at the moment - we’ve had games cancelled, then after you play away, you don’t play, you play FA Cup and you play away again,” he said.

“So you don’t really know where you stand. You don’t have the same number of games, you don’t have the continuity home and away. What is for sure is that we are in a position where we can’t waste points.

“We want to play in the Champions League next season. We have a tough job because we have six or seven teams fighting for the places and how well we do until the end of the season will of course depend on that.

“On the rest, we are in the semi-finals of the FA Cup, we have an opportunity to do that as well. So overall those are our targets. After that, success is basically to take the maximum out of the potential of the team. Where is that? We will see.”

 

More polls to come later in the season!
