Premier League third place between five teams claims Wenger

Arsene Wenger believes the fight to nab third place in the Premier League is between his Arsenal side and four other clubs - Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and the Gunners’ Monday evening opponents Newcastle United, the Daily Telegraph has revealed.

Wenger is quoted as saying: "We want to finish as high as we can. It will be difficult because we know that we face a massive battle there with Tottenham, Chelsea, Newcastle and maybe Liverpool."

Arsenal are currently fourth in the table with a game in hand, to be played on Monday against Newcastle. A win over the Magpies would see Arsenal remain in fourth spot but move just a point behind Spurs. Arsenal have 49 points to their name while Spurs sit on 53. Wenger’s side are level on points with Chelsea in fifth but the Blues have played a game more. Newcastle lie in sixth position, five points behind Arsenal and Chelsea and nine adrift of Tottenham.

Third place is the final position which guarantees a team entry into the group stages of the Champions League. Last season Manchester City beat Arsenal to the spot by three points, pushing Arsenal into a Champions League play-off with Udinese which Arsenal won 3-1 on aggregate.
