Middlesbrough, Manchester City and Leicester City. Three consecutive games where we have had to dig in to secure crucial wins.
Our performances may not have been pretty at times but Arsene Wenger says getting back into a winning habit will give us the confidence we need to end the season on a high.

“Every win gives you a little plus,” he said. “And on that front, plus plus, plus plus, will help us to go into the next game really focused and with a great desire to win at Tottenham.
“[Against Leicester] we took the initiative the whole game and we played against a team who defended very well and very deep and didn’t give us any space. They are difficult to destabilise and to get out of position.
“Overall we needed to be patient and not become too nervous. In the end we took all the risks, all the gambles - and it paid off. So I am very happy, because the hunger was there, the desire was there, the discipline was there, just what we missed a little bit was the zip in the change of pace and the penetration a little bit. That’s maybe why we suffered a little bit and couldn’t kill the game off.”
