Nerve Is Key To Third - Wenger

Nerve Is Key To Third - Wenger

Arsene Wenger has told his Arsenal side they must hold their nerve if they are to stay third in the Premier League.

Wenger's men came back from a goal down on Saturday to beat Norwich 3-1, following three late goals, with that win moving them to third in the table.

The Gunners sit just one point above Chelsea, who have a game in hand - their FA Cup semi-final date at Wembley pushing back their Premier League clash with Tottenham.

"It is a question of nerves," Wenger said.

"The win over Norwich was a balance of nerves, quality and intelligence.

"We did not do anything stupid when we were 1-0 down and kept faith in our game. That side of the game will be important.

"We know we cannot drop points and we have to go until the end with this consistency."
