Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes that Arsenal has the potential to end third this season, above both Chelsea and Tottenham.
Arsenal are currently fifth in the table and they are only two points behind Chelsea and one point behind Tottenham.
“I’m not sure the other places are not reachable,” Wenger told Arsenal.com. “Chelsea are only two points ahead. I’m not sure it will only be a fight with Tottenham. It could be a tight fight until the end.
“We are ready for that. We are ready to fight for the football we love to play. You could see that against Aston Villa.
“We continued to play until the last second of the game and we will continue to do that until the end of the season. Recently in the Premier League we have not conceded too many.
“But I think we have to improve a little bit the number of goals we are scoring because in recent games we created a lot of chances but didn’t take advantage.”
Wenger has, however, revealed that his players have a very low confidence level due to defeats at the hands of Blackburn and Bayern Munich.
“Right now, confidence is our best friend and a lack of confidence is our worst enemy,” Wenger conceded. “Both of them are very fragile.
“We were nervous [against Villa] because we had absolutely to win. We had hit the wall twice in one week.
“When you drive in a car and you have an accident at 100 miles an hour. You say ‘OK, we go again.’
“If you hit it again three days later. You will then drive a little bit more cautiously. That’s exactly how it was.”
