Gunners boss thinks club can overhaul North London rivals Spurs.
Arsene Wenger has warned bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur that his side is willing to fight to the end for the fourth Champions League spot.
The Gunners find themselves four points behind their neighbours who currently occupy the coveted fourth spot in the Premier League but Wenger remains bullish about his side’s chances.
“There are many games to go, we are in a fight and the game on Saturday showed that we are ready for a fight,” the Frenchman is quoted as saying by the Evening Standard.
Arsenal fans have been quick to remember the capitulation of Spurs last season.
This time last year the white side of North London held a 10-point lead over the Emirates Stadium club but a dismal run of form saw Harry Redknapp’s charges falter and Arsenal take full advantage.
Wenger knows full well that this four point lead is a more easily overcome that and after a battling away win at Sunderland, ‘Le Prof’ feels his side has more resolve about them.
“Our character was questioned many times,” fhe former Monaco manager added.
“You saw (on Saturday) that we have plenty. I liked the last 20 minutes when we were pushed back. We headed every single ball. We tried like mad and that’s fantastic to see.”
“Sometimes you have to just dig in and some players played in uncomfortable positions. When we have the desire to win, it helps a lot.”
