London: Arsene Wenger claims he will look back on the season as a missed opportunity even if Arsenal clinch a place in the Champions League this weekend.
Wenger's side can ensure participation in Champions League with a victory over West Brom today.
"When we came out of Christmas, we were in a strong position and what you want then is to have your strong players available in March and April, but we had too many injuries," said Wenger, who lost the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere for long periods this term.
Chelsea face Norwich
Despite manager Jose Mourinho's insistence that Chelsea cannot win the Premier League this season, beating Norwich City today would leave them top of the table with a week remaining.
Title rivals Manchester City and Liverpool will each have a game in hand by then, but Chelsea need both teams to slip up if they are to finish above them.
"The only thing we can do is win both matches," said Mourinho, whose side finish their campaign at Cardiff City on May 11.
