Per Mertesacker maintains Arsenal are confident they can break into the top four despite the disappointment of failing to secure all three points against Wolves.

The Gunners missed the opportunity to leapfrog Chelsea when they were frustrated by an inspired performance from visiting goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey and a battling display from Mick McCarthy's men, who survived the second-half sending off of midfielder Nenad Milijas to earn a 1-1 draw.

But German defender Mertesacker insists there is still plenty to play for heading into 2012, saying: "We had a big chance to go into fourth place, but we didn't do that. It was our fault - we had a lot of chances but we didn't score."
