Arsène Wenger says his side’s creativity against Norwich should provide enough belief to take into next weekend’s season finale against West Brom.

Arsenal suffered late heartbreak at Emirates Stadium on Saturday as Steve Morison’s equaliser restricted them to a 3-3 draw.

But, with both Tottenham and Newcastle dropping points on Sunday, the team’s Champions League fate remains in their own hands. And Wenger believes his side can take heart from the number of opportunities they created against the Canaries.

“We have a belief,” said the Frenchman. “When you look at the chances we created, it is absolutely unbelievable that we scored only three goals.

“Again we are punished because Robin had to score and many times we do not get enough goals from elsewhere. We had so many obvious chances that you would want somebody else to score one. That doesn't happen enough.

“Of course we need to address that because I feel there was enough room to score six or seven goals.

“We were not sharp in the first half but is it down to too much preparation, not being switched on or subconsciously thinking we will manage to do it? We were not at the pace of the game in the first half for sure.”
