Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed his determination to see his side finish the season positively.
Having crashed out of the Champions League in midweek at the last-16 stage for the fifth consecutive season, Arsenal now have the Premier League and an FA Cup semi-final with Reading to focus on.
With seven points between themselves and league leaders Chelsea, Wenger believes the Blues have a strong cushion but that won’t stop the Gunners battling until the end.
He said: “At the moment we are too far away from Chelsea, but we have an opportunity every week to get closer and for that we need positive results from us, and negative results from Chelsea.
“The only thing we can master is positive results from us. I believe Chelsea still has a very good cushion and very good security.
“But we just have to focus on our performances and our strengths. I do not count on the weaknesses of any of our opponents. It is down to our performances until the end of the season.”
Arsenal face Newcastle United on Saturday, with the Gunners at 1.60 to win, 4.33 to draw and 6.00 to lose to the Magpies at St James’ Park.
