"The league has changed mentally".
Arsenal will host already-relegated Sunderland in their penultimate league game on Wednesday followed by seventh-placed Everton on Sunday before facing champions Chelsea in the FA Cup final on May 27.
"With him, I feel he had something still left, but once he's on the pitch and gets the ball, he always becomes a devil and forgets his pain", Wenger said in the press conference after revealing that he only chose to play the Chilean at 4pm on Tuesday (16 May).
"I felt he had something still left", Wenger said. Overall, that is in a very short spell where we have paid for it.
"We are a victim of nobody. If you look at the number of points we can make it's one of the best in the last 10 years". Sunderland are already down but their players applied themselves against Arsenal and almost got a point.
Wenger admitted his own team's failings will be to blame if they finish outside the top four for the first time since he arrived at the club more than 20 years ago. To finish in front of Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, it means a lot.
Calls for Wenger's resignation from fans have grown louder and louder since the Gunners Champions League qualification became uncertain.
Arsene Wenger says Arsenal's away form has cost them in the title race. "They will buy players". But that's part of the modern challenge - to find the players who strengthen the team.
"You have to put yourself in a position where you depend on your results only".
"There is a shortage of top-level players, because there are some big teams in Europe who have top players but they do not need to sell them". "When you play football, you do not count how many people are sitting in the stand".
Moyes said that British players had too much pride to ever give anything less than 100 per cent, a common theme of his this season.
