Wenger no doubts over character of Arsenal squad

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is confident his team have the fight for a UEFA Champions League spot. The Gunners are four points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with Chelsea (third) and Everton (sixth) also involved in the battle.

"We are in the fight and the game on Saturday showed that we are ready for a fight," the Frenchman said.

"Our character was questioned many times. "You saw on Saturday that we have plenty. I liked the last 20 minutes when we were pushed back. We headed every single ball. We tried like mad and that's fantastic to see.

"Sometimes you have to just dig in and some players played in uncomfortable positions. When we have the desire to win, it helps a lot."
