Arsene Wenger says Arsenal have the momentum and believes it could help them secure a Champions League place.

The Gunners stay in third spot after Theo Walcott’s goal secured them a 1-0 win at already relegated Queens Park Rangers and Wenger lauded another crucial three points away from home.

The situation is still effectively out of Arsenal’s hands as both Tottenham and Chelsea have games in hand and can go above the Gunners if they win them.

However Chelsea take on Manchester United at Old Trafford this afternoon and Wenger says the pressure is now on the Blues to pick up a positive result, especially after Tottenham also won yesterday.

“I don’t know how much but it puts you under pressure because you have to make a result,” Wenger revealed. “We are up for it. We are ready for a fight and the team is highly focused to do it. We are on a very strong run.

“We definitely have a momentum, if you look at the points we have made compared to two months ago. We are going for it and we make the points.

“Away from home recently we have won everywhere – at Fulham, at Sunderland, at Swansea, at QPR. Derbies are difficult to win.”
