Arsene Wenger says that "some teams are on holiday" as the Premier League season draws to a close.

After a 2-0 loss at rivals Tottenham Hotspur last month, Arsenal looked dead and buried in pursuit of a 21st successive Champions League qualification but the Gunners have climbed to within a point of fourth-placed Liverpool.

They need the Reds to fail to beat relegated Middlesbrough at Anfield on Sunday to stand any chance of maintaining Wenger's record of never finishing outside of the top four in a full season at the helm.

"I don't understand how the managers speak for the other clubs and the other teams", he said.

"They play the way they want to play, so if teams of Tony Pulis want to play that way, perfect". If you look at just the first halves, we would have qualified.

"We knew that we were playing for our lives really, so any result other than a win wasn't good for us".

Bayern have already won the Bundesliga this term, while the two Champions League finalists - Juventus and Real Madrid - are top of Serie A and second in La Liga respectively. "You always will have regrets because you could have one point more, but you forget as well the games you won in the last minute".

For Gunners - the season might once again become a decent one if they are able to finish in top four and win the FA Cup final against the newly crowned EPL Champions Cheslea.

The England midfielder added: "I felt the balance was right and we didn't have to put too much pressure on ourselves".

Wenger said: "The players have responded after a hard period. Do it better during the season and you will not have this problem".

Wenger's situation is also a topic of intense debate, as many Arsenal supporters demand the Frenchman - out of contract at the end of the season - makes way for a change in leadership.
