Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Manchester City left them seven points outside the Champions League qualifying positions with a game in hand.
But Wenger is still looking up.
"I tell myself to finish as high as possible... It (finishing in the top four) is a good challenge but I think it's perfectly possible,” Wenger said, before adding:
Certainly for 20 years I have done it and it looked always like it's nothing. Suddenly it becomes important, so I am quite pleased that people realise that it's not as easy as it looks. If you listen to (Manchester City manager) Pep Guardiola, he said the other day that to achieve the top four in England is a trophy because it's so difficult.
Arsenal have come back from weak positions in the past under Wenger, maintaining a record that has seen the club finish no lower than fourth in any of the past 20 seasons. And Wenger, who has overseen that entire run, says that his team’s experience of recovering from positions of adversity will count in their favour.
"The experience will play a part, of course, but I think it is just about sticking together and continuing to fight," he said.
