Having cut the deficit between Arsenal and Man City (in 4th place) to 6 points with a game in hand, Arsene Wenger believes his side need a flawless run to finish in the top four this season.
The Gunners have seven games to go, and with some tricky tests against the likes of Man United, Sp*rs, Stoke and Everton, it’s a difficult run in.
However, the Arsenal manager has called on his side to build on the 2-1 win over Boro on Monday night and do what they’ve always done – finish in the Champions League places.
“For us the clarity is there,” he said.
“We have to win every game to have a chance to get into the top four.
“I think we give a bit more, made it seem a bit more serene, you could see that in some occasions we were a bit overcautious tonight and played with situation we are not used to, and hopefully that will give us a bit more confidence.
“Mathematically it is still possible even if it is difficult, but we have to give it a go.”
