Wenger hopes Arsenal keep their nerve

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has told his players that they must stay calm and keep their nerve if they are to finish in the top four this season.
The Gunners showed all of their fighting spirit on Saturday, as they came from a goal behind to beat Norwich 3-1 and move up to third in the Premier League table.
Despite them now having played a game more than the Blues, the Emirates Stadium side will certainly be glad to have the points on the board and have the perfect chance to consolidate their position in the top four when they meet fellow Champions League hopefuls Everton on Tuesday.
This is all a far cry from earlier in the season, when both fans and pundits who bet on football alike were questioning Wenger’s methods after he once again let some of the club’s best players’ leave in the summer, most notably skipper Robin van Persie who joined Manchester United.
However the Frenchman has again proved his class by turning the situation around and will be confident of guiding his side to a top four finish once again.
With six games left the situation is now in their hands and the run-in certainly suits them, with United the only team above them that they are still to face.
Wenger knows his side cannot afford to drop anymore points and has called on them to hold their nerve and seal Champions League football.
"It is a question of nerves," Wenger said to Premier League betting news reporters. "The win over Norwich was a balance of nerves, quality and intelligence.
"We did not do anything stupid when we were 1-0 down and kept faith in our game. That side of the game will be important.
"We know we cannot drop points and we have to go until the end with this consistency."
