Derby fillip in Wenger sights

ARSENAL manager Arsene Wenger admits his team have their “backs to the wall” as they look to bounce back from Sunday’s defeat at Chelsea tonight against West Ham.

Victory would lift the Gunners to within four points of the Premier League’s top four, and Wenger said: “I’m confident we will but the team was very down after Chelsea.”

The Hammers could go 10th with a win, but have taken just five points from their last seven fixtures.
