'This is a decisive period for us'

We go into Sunday's match against Manchester City three places and seven points behind Pep Guardiola's side, albeit with a game in hand.

With the season in its final third and an Emirates FA Cup semi-final on the horizon, Arsène Wenger agrees that April will be a decisive month for his team.

"I think it's not only the period that matters - it is a decisive period - but also what is at stake for us is how we respond mentally to a disappointing period and how much we can focus and stick together now," he said.

"We come out of a difficult period and we play at home in a very big game. It's a good opportunity for us to bounce back. I think it's two teams who, when you look at the numbers, have the best numbers of the final third in the league.

"That promises to be a very positive, attacking game. Both teams will attack - they go for it, we go for it, so it should be a promising game.

"Our season will now be decided by the next two months, but as well by the ability and the strength we can show together to fight and come back in a very convincing way.

"We had a deficit at West Brom on that front and I think the most important will be that our future will be decided by our mental qualities."
