Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is confident his side remain in with a good chance of qualifying for the Champions League despite dropping points in the goalless draw at Bolton.

It was the Gunners' first point in four matches and, although they stayed within five points of fourth-placed Chelsea they slipped to seventh in the table. Arsenal had chances to win, with Robin van Persie hitting the post and the bar in the second half, but could not find a way to break down a Wanderers side who have grown in confidence over the last month.

"There is a long way to go and I am confident we can come back," said Wenger of the race for fourth place, which involves themselves, Chelsea, Liverpool and Newcastle. "It is a long way to go. We have gone through a difficult period, we've lost three league games but we could have won the three as well.
