Arsène Wenger believes moving back into the top four has given his team a huge psychological lift.

Thierry Henry's last-gasp winner against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light helped Arsenal leapfrog both Chelsea and Newcastle in the Premier League table.

With the season moving towards its final straight, Wenger says his team are perfectly positioned for a strong finish.

"It is fantastic for us to come back into a decent position in the table," he told Arsenal Player.

"Not many teams would have won [against Sunderland] against a side who are doing very well.

"It is a massive lift for us because a few weeks ago nobody believed we could turn it around and we have done it. It can change very quickly but it is better to be in this position than not."
