Wenger: We can't rely on van Persie
Arsene Wenger has challenged Arsenal to stand up and be counted on the final day of the season and not just rely on Robin van Persie.
The Gunners' inability to see off Norwich at Emirates Stadium in what was a thrilling 3-3 draw on Saturday did not ultimately prove too costly after Newcastle were beaten by Manchester City and Tottenham failed to win at Aston Villa.
Another weekend of unpredictable results means Arsenal retain a one-point advantage in third place heading into their final fixture at West Brom next weekend.
Wenger, though, accepts Arsenal cannot have another off day and just hope Van Persie will again dig them out of trouble, the captain having chalked up his 30th Barclays Premier League goal of what has been an outstanding individual campaign with a second-half brace against the Canaries.
"When you look at the chances we created, it is absolutely unbelievable that we scored only three goals," said the Arsenal boss. "Again we are punished because Robin had to score and many times we do not get enough goals from elsewhere.
"We had so many obvious chances that you would want somebody else to score one. That does not happen enough. Of course we need to address that because I feel there was enough room to score six or seven goals."
