Arsene Wenger was his usual cheeky self following Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday.

  • Arsenal six points below Manchester City in fourth
  • Gunners have four games left
  • Last time Arsenal and Southampton met, Gunners won 5-0
  • Wenger wants to focus on win

After beating Jose Mourinho’s United 2-0, the Gunners are three points closer to potentially clinching Champions League football next season.

However, in order to do that, Arsenal don’t only need to win their remaining games, they need team around them to drop points.

City hold fourth spot and are six points ahead of Arsenal.

Arsenal travel to Southampton on Wednesday night, a ground that the Gunners have found it difficult to get results at during recent years. However, last time they met with the Saints in the FA Cup in January, Arsenal won 5-0.

“We have a big game on Wednesday. Southampton are a good team,” Wenger said.

“Collectively they play well. They keep possession of the ball and we need to recover and focus to win on Wednesday. We still have a chance mathematically and we need some help as well from teams around us.”

Southampton drew 0-0 with third-place Liverpool at the weekend in a match which saw Jurgen Klopp’s side miss a penalty. Something Wenger confirmed that he saw.

“I watched the game and I’ve seen the penalty given by the referee as well. It was very nice,” Wenger joked.

“After that, yes I watched the end of the game.”
