Wenger: We should still expect twists and turns in the Premier League

Arsene Wenger believes it is down to his players how high they finish in the league table this season but the results of their rivals will clearly play a part.

The Gunners sit in fourth position, seven points behind leaders Liverpool. Both teams have played 32 games. Arsenal stand four points clear of fifth placed Everton who they face this weekend. Roberto Martinez's side also have a game in hand on the north Londoners.

But with Wenger boosted by the return of Aaron Ramsey into his matchday squad for the trip to Goodison Park, the Frenchman believes his side must take advantage of playing Everton this weekend so they can increase the points distance between the two clubs.

The Arsenal manger said:
"For us it is an opportunity to go up forward and as well an opportunity to make a distance with Everton of course. 
"The target is to finish as high as possible. Where that will be at the moment I must say, behind us will depend only on our results. 
"In front of us will depend on our results and the results on the other teams, so that's impossible to predict."
Manchester City have two games in hand on leaders Liverpool and are just four points behind the Merseyside club. They also travel to Anfield in nine days time.

Wenger believes that there is still chance for twists and turns in the title race and it will go down to the final game of the season.

The 64-year-old added:
"There are still a lot of twists and turns in the Premier League until the end of the season and there is no clear favourite. 
"Liverpool has an advantage as they don't play any competition other than the Premier League for a long, long time so they have only one target and they can of course be stable in their preparation. That is a little advantage, but it is very tight."
