Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is confident that his side can go to Newcastle United on Sunday and get the result they need to secure a Champions League spot for next season's competition.

Wenger's men are currently in fourth just one-point ahead of Tottenham and know that their Champions League fate is in their own hands.

The Gunners picked up a vital three-points on Tuesday night as they thrashed Wigan Athletic 4-1 thanks to a brace from Lukas Podolski and then goals from Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey. The result also relegates Wigan to the Championship just three days after winning the FA Cup final.

Arsenal will now travel to St James Park on Sunday to face Newcastle United, whilst rivals Tottenham end the season at home to Sunderland, but Arsene Wenger believes it isn't a disadvantage to be playing away from home.

Wenger told reporters after the Wigan match: "I don't know [if that could be an advantage]. In every single game until the end, for a long time now, we are in a position where we absolutely want the three points.

"Sometimes when you want it absolutely it takes some creativity away from your team.

"You could see as soon as it because 3-1 we were more dangerous and played with more freedom. it is part of being a top-level player, to deal with that".

Wenger then went on to speak about how he is confident that his team can get the result they need at Newcastle as he believes his side has the experience to do so.

He added: "I am confident because we have experience, we play for a long time under massive pressure and we have always found the solutions with the problems that we have faced".
