Oxlade-Chamberlain feels the Gunners can draw on their experiences last year, when a late charge saw them secure third position.
"It helps to know that we managed to squeeze in last season for the Champions League in the way that we did,” he told arsenal.com. “If you look at Wigan and the way they stayed up last season then I'm sure the confidence and belief in their camp is high.
"That's what it does for a squad. Previous experiences can help you and contribute to the way that you feel the season afterwards. The fact that we did it last season definitely helps our confidence to do it again this time.”
