Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had picked up a hamstring injury but Wenger said that the injury was not serious.

Arsenal must now win their three remaining games and hope City or third-place Liverpool drop points if they are to secure a 20th successive season of Champions League football.

City now sit three points ahead of Arsenal in fourth, with a superior goal difference, so while they are closest to Wenger's team in the battle for the top four, Liverpool appear most vulnerable and they only have themselves to blame.

Bellerin already played in the position against Leicester last week, and Wenger said the Spain worldwide is well suited for the role.

"There are a lot of clubs interested in Charlie Taylor, we're not the only club interested in him", said Pulis.

It was a fairly dismal evening for a Southampton side who had drawn their previous two games 0-0 and mustered few chances in another largely toothless display.

"He went through a hard period when he came back from his ankle injury, but I never questioned his attitude. He has great spirit", Wenger said.

He's got a small chance.

"He was not far".

The 23-year-old started strongly against Southampton - nearly creating the opening goal when he darted in from the wing and played in Aaron Ramsey - but collapsed to the turf and signaled to the bench that he was unable to continue, shortly before the interval.

But that's the club Arsenal have become under Arsene Wenger in recent seasons, incapable of maintaining consistency and prone to periods of rank mediocrity.

Arsenal have struggled at Stoke, and Wenger called on his team to "show character" at the Britannia.

Asked about Arsenal finding their form at the right time, the Germany global replied: "Well I wish we found that before".

However, in the 21 years Arsenal have spent above Tottenham, the Gunners have won three Premier League titles and six FA Cups.

"He has been wonderful for us", Wenger said. Let's not go too quickly to conclusions, and focus and give everything at Stoke on Saturday.We know we can only win our games, and we had a strong performance on Sunday.
