Arsene Wenger refused to rule out a big summer of spending should Arsenal miss out on a Champions League place.

The Gunners were once five points clear at the top of the Premier League table but, after heavy defeats to Chelsea and Everton, find themselves embroiled in a familiar battle for fourth place.

Roberto Martinez's Everton side could now finish above Arsenal if they win all six of their remaining games and the pressure is once again on Arsene Wenger to deliver Champions League football to the Emirates Stadium.

But should Arsenal miss out on the Champions League, Wenger is prepared to overhaul his team in an effort revitalise their fortunes.

Asked if he could make big changes should Arsenal finish fifth, Wenger was non-committal in his response.

Speaking to reporters, he said: "We'll see, let's see first how we finish, we have the basics.

"What is important for us is to be able to have our [injured] players back.

"Then our main task will be to keep the team together and think where did it go wrong?

"We have had a lot of positives in our season as well, 17 times we have been in the lead of the league and we have dropped off when we lost our players toward the end of the season."

As mentioned by Wenger, Arsenal will be looking to keep their squad together in a similar vein to last summer when, for the first time in what seemed like a long time, they kept all of their key players in north London.

However, Arsenal have once again been hampered by a number of injury issues with long-term injuries sustained by key players Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott.
