Wenger calls for calm in Champions League run-in

Arsene Wenger has advised his Arsenal players to remain focused as the battle to reach the Champions League continues, according to the Independent.

Arsenal moved into pole position to reach the Champions League ahead of Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea by virtue of a hard-fought victory over Everton on Wednesday, a Thomas Vermaelen goal enough to take the Gunners into third after both Chelsea and Spurs dropped points.

Chelsea were beaten by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium while Tottenham were held to a draw at White Hart Lane by Stoke City. The results mean Arsenal now lead Spurs by a point and are six clear of Chelsea in fifth.

Wenger said: “We want to keep going and we must not think now that the most difficult thing is done. Probably the most difficult thing still remains to do, and to achieve it it is important we keep humility, focus and fight for each other.

With nine Premier League games to play Arsenal are well-placed to finish above their rivals and with Chelsea and Tottenham meeting at Stamford Bridge on Saturday at least one of the pair will again drop points. Arsenal meet Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium that same day.
