The Frenchman hoped for a Premier League title triumph this season, but instead his charges are scrapping for a place among Europe’s elite after slipping behind Manchester City into fourth on goal difference, with Manchester United four points behind.
Two wins in their last seven league games has put Wenger’s record of 18 straight seasons in Europe’s top club competition under threat.
After the Gunners let slip their lead to draw 1-1 with Crystal Palace on Sunday at the Emirates, Wenger is looking over his shoulder.
Wenger says: “For us, it will be a fight until the end to get a place in the top four.
“If we can do more, we will do more. But let’s not dream.”
Arsenal created 21 chances with only six attempts on target, but Wenger believes that they should have made more opportunities, rather than focus on the finishing.”
