Wenger: Arsenal have experience to qualify for Champions League again

first_img1 Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal have the necessary experience to qualify for the Champions League once again.The Gunners find themselves down in sixth place in the Premier League, following Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at White Hart Lane, where a second-half salvo from Harry Kane secured Tottenham fans the bragging rights around north London.However, Arsenal could once again leapfrog their local rivals – who travel to Liverpool – and end up in third should they beat bottom club Leicester on Tuesday night, when leading scorer Alexis Sanchez is expected to be available again following a hamstring strain.Wenger believes the fight for a top-four finish will, as in previous campaigns, go down to the wire, when Arsenal have historically come good for the past 17 seasons.“Yes, of course, experience will play a big part in it,” the Frenchman said. “It will be tight for everybody and that is what it is about.“It is about the team with the most consistency – I have always said that – and I feel we have shown that we can deal with that kind of pressure in the past.“I am confident we can do it again. Every year (there is a danger of not finishing in the top four) and every year we were under threat until the last game, basically. (But) every year we have managed to do it.“We have a good opportunity to show that we have the strength to deal with that pressure and I am completely convinced we have the quality (to do it).”last_img read more
