Wenger: 'Very good chance' of top four

Arsene Wenger has said Arsenal "have a very good chance" of finishing ahead of North London rivals Tottenham and claiming a top-four finish.

But Wenger has told his players they cannot afford any slip-ups in their final nine Premier League fixtures after Tottenham's recent dip in form increased their chances of a 16th successive Champions League finish.

Wenger, whose side take on struggling Reading at the Emirates on Saturday, urged the Gunners to "grab this chance".

"We want to use this pressure [to finish in the top four] in a positive way," he said. "That means as a stimulating incitement to play our best football. That is where we can show that we have maturity.

"We have the experience of a few years [of finishing in the top four]. We have a special desire to do it together. We are back with a very good chance to do it, and we want to grab this chance."

Wenger said his players knew they could achieve their goal if they were consistent, and added: "We do not focus on Tottenham at all. We focus on the way we want to play and our results.

"We just want to continue our form. [Recent wins against] Bayern and Swansea are a good inspiration to continue our run-in now. I think we have a very good chance to finish in the top four."

Wenger also dismissed those claiming his side had been favoured with a good run of final fixtures.

"I haven't seen any kind fixtures since the start of the season, and the results in the Premier League show that," the manager said.

"When you fight against a team fighting not to go down you prepare to be at your best, knowing it can be very difficult."
