Wenger: "I'm not influenced" by fan protests

With two matches remaining, Arsenal, winners of five of their past six games, have 69 points - one fewer than Liverpool in fourth.

Wenger will be hoping Middlesbrough - who face Liverpool on Sunday with nothing to play for after being relegated - and City's remaining opponents, West Brom and Watford, can do Arsenal a favour by picking up results.

Wenger has never seen any of his Arsenal teams finish outside of the Premier League's top four and he could be faced with that reality by the end of this week if results do not go his way.

"Some teams turn up, some teams are on holiday".

"They play the way they want to play, so if teams of Tony Pulis want to play that way, perfect".

The 23 year old has been ruled out of the final two Premier League games of the season, and the Arsenal manager says the earliest he'll be back is for the Wembley showdown with Chelsea.

"If you are in any doubt, look at our season and compare that to Chelsea, Juventus and Atletico Madrid".

An emphatic 4-1 win at Stoke kept the Gunners in contention for a top four finish and a 21st consecutive season of elite European football.


The manager, whose future has been the subject of speculation in the media and who is out of contract at the end of the season, did not clarify whether he would sign a new deal with Arsenal. If we make 75 points, we can only be beaten by one point.

I felt the balance was right and we didn't have to put too much pressure on ourselves.

"He got that goal and their fans got a bit louder, so we showed a bit of character to stay in the game when they had seven corners in a row", Holding said.

Wenger added: "Our top-four chances depend on winning our games".

"So you don't want to complain, do it better during the season and you will not have this problem".

Wenger was left unimpressed by West Ham's performance at the London Stadium, accusing certain sides of failing to give their best when knowing that there is little left to play for.

Sánchez limped out of the 4-1 win against Stoke City on Saturday after sustaining what Arsène Wenger described as a "kick to the thigh", with the Chile global joining the defender Laurent Koscielny as a doubt for the game on Tuesday.
