Arsene Wenger never stopped believing in character of his Arsenal team

A first start in four Premier League games for the German global and he had to go some way to making up for his horror show in the 3-0 loss away at Crystal Palace last month as he looked out of sorts playing alongside Gabriel Paulista at Selhurst Park.

Fresh from a morale-boosting win over Manchester United on the weekend, the Gunners needed to continue their momentum with a win against a side that haven't made it easy for them in the past.

Former Arsenal full-back Lauren insists that Arsene Wenger is a person who knows how to handle pressure and won't resign, despite a section of fans calling for him to go.

But also to have the ball and the possibility in the final third to find the clinical edge and to produce good football.

The Gunners were comfortable after that and doubled their lead on 83 minutes as Sanchez found Aaron Ramsey at the back post, who nodded it on to Giroud to head in from close range. They cannot overtake the Reds even by winning them both, but they will need to win here to have any realistic chance of finishing in the top four yet again.

"Recently we shot ourselves in the foot against Tottenham, because we did not get any points and obviously we left ourselves in the situation where we have to keep winning every game", said Cech.

Arsenal moved above Manchester United into fifth on 66 points, three adrift of fourth-placed Manchester City with both having played 35 games.

"We had a very tough game here", Courtois told British media, referring to Chelsea's 1-0 win over West Brom at Stamford Bridge in December.

"We had some chances in the first half, it was a very even game. The more games I play, the better I get".

Ajax have a host of promising youngsters in their side, but one player who really stood out tonight was Danish worldwide Kasper Dolberg.

Reaching the May 24 finale was far from straightforward, though, as Marouane Fellaini's first-half header was cancelled out by Facundo Roncaglia five minutes from the end of the semi-final second leg.

Arsenal has three matches left, against Stoke, Sunderland and Everton. If we win the Europa League I am more than happy.

On finishing in the top four...

"Over the last two seasons teams who were not involved in Europe at all have won the league", the Frenchman said.
