Wenger: 'It was important not to lose'

... starting with this after being asked if we can finish fourth:

"I feel yes because they (Bolton) had a good opportunity today to come back to us and they played a 1-1 draw against Everton. That keeps them a fair distance. It is down to how we do.

"For the club, it is very important, for the players, for everybody inside the club and everybody who loves the club. We are used to being there and we want to do it again."

And on the Newcastle game....

"We wanted to win the game and we could have maybe nicked a 1-0, but they saved one on the line and they could have scored as well at the end.

"Both teams had good defensive performances and it was a game of few chances. For us after three defeats, it was important not to lose, and maybe it could be a good point at the end of the season."
