Wenger: Arsenal can handle the pressure

Arsene Wenger has faith that Arsenal can withstand the pressure of fighting for a Champions League place with the FA Cup final on the horizon, Sky Sports has reported.

Arsenal returned to the Premier League’s top four on Tuesday by virtue of their win over West Ham United, Everton’s defeat at home to Crystal Palace 24 hours later ensuring Wenger’s side remain a point clear of the Toffees.


Wenger acknowledged that there is pressure on Arsenal, but doesn’t believe it is a bad thing. “Pressure is positive because you play for something and when you play for something it's a challenge but, as well, a great opportunity to do well, that is what we live for,” Wenger said.


“What we want to do is win our next game and the best way to deal with that situation is to win the next one.


“I want what is satisfying, and for me it is to do as well as we can until the end of the season and turn and think that this team has behaved really like a top level professional team with the ups and the downs.


“You want to feel that your team has given as much as they could and after that you leave the judgement to other people.”


Wenger admitted that morale at Arsenal had taken a hit after recent results that saw Everton overtake them in the league and Bayern Munich knock them out of the Champions League. But, he insisted, matters had improved with a run of wins.


“A team who doesn't win is not happy and questions come out very quickly, so what is important to play football well is you have to be completely confident and believe in your game,” Wenger said. “The belief is stronger when your recent history of the team is positive.”


Both Everton and Arsenal have four league games to play this season, with Arsenal meeting cup final opponents Hull this weekend as Everton host Manchester United. Everton end the season away at Hull, whereas Arsenal travel to Norwich City on the weekend before the cup final.
