Arsene Wenger provides update on Alexis Sanchez injury

Arsene Wenger coaches Arsenal versus Southampton in the Premier League

Reds travel to West Ham on Sunday and play Middlesbrough on the last day of the season, while the Gunners host Sunderland on Tuesday and Everton in their final league match next weekend.

"If the game is hard for me and good for the team, I am very happy to take that", Wenger said. After a spell of six league defeats in 11 games, Wenger's side went from title contenders to sixth place. Mind you, the fact they can still make the top four, makes this a huge game for them too. We had to stick together.

The dark cloud of uncertainty and implosion appears to have dissipated at Arsenal with manager Arsene Wenger hailing his players' "fighting spirit" following their third Premier League victory in a week to rekindle their top-four ambitions.

"It's often the same result against the big six, we can not find the good win against one of these teams", he said.

"The team looks strong and solid at the moment".

Arsenal: "Traditionally there is a fierce rivalry and they had always a very direct game against us. It would be typical of Arsenal to end a hard league season with some good results, and I think Danny Welbeck will play a key part for them, because he is looking stronger with every game he plays after coming back from injury".

"Every time it was interesting, I think, the play".
