Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere does not believe the next few games are make-or-break for Arsenal’s season.

Either side of the replay against Swansea, Arsenal face defending Premier League champions Manchester City and European champions Chelsea as they look to secure a top-four spot.

He said: “We have got a tough few games but we know in England that this time of the year is so important. We’ve got a big game on Sunday and we know City are a good team. But we are at our home and we have to take the game to them.

“I’m not sure about make-or-break. We are not in the position in the league where we want to be. We want to be higher. We have a game in hand and we have to make sure that we make it count.”
