We have fought like mad to come back in a strong position in the league, Wenger said. Not to win at Palace would have been disastrous.But the spirit is there. We want to keep that because we have to go to some very tough places. The team has gone up since December.
I wanted to warn people, make it public but I couldn't prove anything definitively, said Wenger in 2006. At that time corruption and doping were big things and there was nothing worse than knowing the cards were stacked against us from the beginning.
It will be down to consistency, Wenger told Sky Sports. Everybody will fight for it. You have six or seven teams who will fight for these positions and that's why the three points were important for us today.
