Wenger: Pressure Makes It interesting

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that it is boring to play games when there is no pressure.

The Gunners go into their final game of the season in a battle with rivals Tottenham Hotspur for fourth place on the league table.

A victory for Arsenal away to Newcastle United will secure fourth place and Wenger admits that they can feel the pressure going into the game.

"The pressure is big, of course, but I always said the worst in my job is to play games without any pressure," the Frenchman told reporters.

“Sometimes you think it would be nice to have a game with no pressure, but when you have one you think, ‘let’s get it back, it’s so boring’.

“What would be terrible would be to go to Newcastle and have nothing at stake for us. We have what we wanted, so let’s just finish the job.”

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud, meanwhile, believes that the fact that Newcastle secured safety in their last game could work in their favour.

“We have to do the job and keep focused on our qualities and our game,” Giroud told the club's official website.

“Never mind if they are a little bit relieved - they will maybe play without pressure. I am not sure, but I think it is better for us.”
