Arsenal take on West Ham Tuesday evening at the Emirates barely 72 hours after scrapping out an important victory over Wigan on Saturday to advance to the finals of the FA Cup.
Wenger believes Arsenal have what it takes to reel off five straight Premier League wins and book their place in next season’s Champions League. Stating that the team has the focus and quality coupled with the returning of some of the clubs’ key players back to regular training.
The Arsenal boss further retierated the importance of the remaining games of the season saying winning all of it is the main target aside the gunners having secured a place at the FA Cup final.
Although Everton are in pole position for a top-four finish after beating Sunderland on Saturday to climb above the gunners. But Wenger is expecting more twists and turns in this unpredictable campaign and he knows that a victory over West Ham United on Tuesday is imperative.
The boss told Arsenal player…
“It [winning every game] is the target,” said Wenger. “Do you need it? Nobody knows, but the target is of course to win every game.
“We want to achieve it [a top-four finish] and that’s simple. We just want to not imagine the consequences of not doing it, what you want is just to focus on doing it.
“That’s where I think we have the focus, the quality of the spirit, we have the desire and we are slowly getting our players back so the squad is not depleted any more. It’s much more stronger than it was two or three weeks ago.”
“West Ham are in a comfortable position, that means they can play without fear, so we know that in these kind of games it’s very important that we have a good focus and a good tempo in our game.
“When you’re in a semi-final and you win… it releases a little bit of pressure on the team on that front, but we want to bounce back in the Premier League.
“Therefore we want to finish strong, we have a battle with Everton and of course it’s now down to consistency in our final games.”
