Wenger: Hopefully we can make some more history

The club has always shown faith in me and I'm very grateful for that.

We have gone through fantastic periods and periods where we have to stick together and every time when that togetherness was tested I got the right response.

I think I have shown some loyalty as well towards this club and hopefully we can make some more history. I am sure we can.

Arsene Wenger added: "We go there to try to win the game. We want to finish on a high. We want to make 79 points, as I said last week, to make it as tight as possible to the top.

"I think we had a good away season apart from some big games, but overall we were very consistent away from home and it is important we finish well away from home."

Arsene Wenger admits injuries took their toll on Arsenal's title challenge as his side moved closer to securing a Champions League football for a 17th consecutive year.

Arsenal's 3-0 win against Newcastle United moved the north London team four points ahead of Everton, but Wenger admits the Gunners want more than just a Champions League place.

"We had Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Koscielny all out in the same period - you can miss one or two but four or five will affect any team," Wenger said.

"Finishing in the top four shows the club has been consistent over the years. We want more but at the crucial period of this season we lost many players.

"We have shown we have potential but we want more next season."
