Arsène Wenger admits that Arsenal are in "a big fight" for a top-four place but he insists there are positives to take out of Wednesday's visit to Bolton.

The visitors had to settle for a point at the Reebok Stadium and have dropped to seventh in the Premier League table behind Liverpool and Newcastle. All the same a win over Blackburn this weekend will take them to within two points of fourth-place Chelsea and Wenger remains confident.

"It is a big fight for fourth but the fact that there are more teams involved is not too bad," he told Arsenal Player.

"We have of course to focus on the game on Saturday and win our home game. Once we do that we can have a good weekend.

"But of course we feel overall it is two points dropped [at Bolton]. We produced a good game - when you play away from home and you create six or seven chances like we did you can not demand much more. We did not concede so overall those are the positives.

"The negatives are that we didn't take our chances. Maybe we lacked a little bit the relaxed attitude we need when we get chances at the moment and hopefully that will go away now."
