Arsene Wenger on Gabriel's injury and a top four finish


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says it's too early to consider the Gunners favourites to finish in the top four.

With ten games left in the Premier League, Arsenal continue to hold on to third place but have tough games coming up against Liverpool at the Emirates and Newcastle away from home.

"I don't know, I haven't studied everybody else," Wenger said on the top four race.

"At the moment you fight all the teams who fight not to go down and fight all teams who want to be in Europe.

"In April some teams are settled and have nothing to go for, it can become a little bit easier. Fixtures that look difficult can become a little bit easier.

"It's difficult to predict if it's us or the other teams who have easier run-ins."

Meanwhile, the Frenchman confirmed that defender Gabriel Paulista will be ruled out for at least three weeks.

"It's a hamstring," he said.

"I don't know, it's bad enough to come off. It's usually 21 days, not years!"
