Arsene Wenger says it is vital for teams to strike the right balance between focus and composure during the run-in to the season.
Arsenal are well-placed to secure another top-four finish in the Premier League, while they have also reached the FA Cup semi-finals for the second year in succession.
The Frenchman relishes the climax to each campaign, and says it offers a major test for every team in the division.
“I like it because every game is important and you feel it is a period where you need composure, focus and mental strength,” Wenger said. “It is interesting to watch your players and see how they respond to that.
“It's important to have a good mixture between focus and composure. That's not easy to find because the tension can be too big.
“Every year it gets more difficult because you have more teams who can compete for [the top four]. In future years it will be even harder. We know that every single game is decisive now. We are already looking forward to the next game.”
