Oxlade-Chamberlain believes Arsenal can pip Spurs in race for top four

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is confident Arsenal can finish the season strongly and cement a top-four position in the Premier League.
The Gunners moved up to third courtesy of Saturday's late show against Norwich, where they hit three late goals to clinch a 3-1 win.
With a home game against Everton on Tuesday night followed by next Saturday's trip to Fulham, by the time Spurs kick off against Manchester City on Sunday, the Gunners could even be in second.
Last season Arsenal beat Spurs into third spot on the final day, and Oxlade-Chamberlain believes history can be repeated.
He said: "That helps to know that we did it last season and we managed to squeeze in last season for the Champions League in the way that we did.
"Previous experiences can help you and contribute in the way that you feel in the season afterwards. "The fact that we did it last season definitely helps our confidence to do it again this season."
Oxlade-Chamberlain, who came off the bench to help kickstart Arsenal's late rally against Norwich, insists the squad have what it takes to last the distance.
"We really have built that team spirit, solidarity and winning mentality. We never give up," he said.
"To come back from a goal down in the last few minutes is brilliant and it gives us a massive boost, massive confidence and a massive three points looking forward to the end of the season."
