Wenger determined to claim top four finish despite Wilshere injury

Wenger determined to claim top four finish despite Wilshere injury

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is determined to qualify for Champions league next season despite the absence of midfield playmaker Jack Wilshere.

The Gunners are currently occupying the fifth place, four points behind bitter rivals Tottenham, but with a game in hand.

21-year-old Jack Wilshere has suffered a setback to his ankle injury which will keep him on the sideles at least two weeks. Wenger hopes the player, who has not taken part in previous two Arsenal games, will be back into action against Norwich. The Frenchman said: “We’ve got nine games to go - five at home and four away. The form we showed against Bayern was very good. We have a chance to finish in the top four.”

“We have the experience of a few years and a special desire to do it together. It’s a good opportunity for us. We want to grab this chance. If we are consistent we will do it. We’re not focused on Tottenham, but the way we want to play. Regarding Jack? I think two weeks on Sunday. Not the next game, but the game after. We deferred his rehab and gave him an extra week’s rest. Medically, it was wise to do it,” he added.
