Arsenal have to fight - Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says his team "have to fight" to get in the top four, after dropping points they "couldn't afford to drop" in a 2-1 loss to north London rivals Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

Wenger says defeat is "difficult to swallow" after two goals in three first-half minutes from Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon were enough to give Spurs the win, with Per Mertesacker's headed reply unable to spark a comeback.

The Gunners are now seven points behind Tottenham, who rise to third, and five points behind Chelsea, who occupy fourth spot.
