Wenger: 'The team who is the most consistent will get there'

Arsene's post-Norwich comments. "We left it late, and it was of course unexpected to be 1-0 down at that stage of the game because we were on top and missed chances. Norwich we knew were strong on set pieces and they punished us for that. "We needed spirit and also nerves, we have shown both and in the end got the win we deserved. But credit to Norwich, they have played very well and if they play like that, then they will not go down. They defended well and gave us problems. "We missed chances and from then on it was important to show absolute resilience and we did it." "Honestly, I have not seen it but people have told me it was a penalty. Television confirmed the penalty. Maybe it was not a corner, but they tell me as well it was not a free-kick (for Norwich's goal)." At the moment, the position is not important, has no real meaning, what is important for us is to keep our run going and the consistency of our wins. "It is really tight, and the team who is the most consistent will get there. At the moment, we have that consistency, so we want to focus on that. We have another big game on Tuesday night and have a good opportunity that we want to take." "Wilshere worked very hard. He has been in full training since Wednesday. Walcott has only been in full training since yesterday, we thought he had enough in the locker to play an hour. I maybe would not have put him straight away in if Rosicky was fit. "I did not want to destructure the team who have been successful and he was the best for this position."
