Wenger: The most difficult part starts now

Arsene Wenger has told Arsenal not to let up after they climbed above Tottenham into third.
Wenger does not want his players to think they have a top-four spot in the bag despite registering a sixth straight league win against Everton to turn around Spurs' 12-point advantage in just seven weeks.
"We have learnt in the last months that, for example, we have taken six points in Liverpool in two weeks," said the Arsenal boss. "They were 180 minutes of intense fight.
"We want to keep going. We must not think that the most difficult bit is done.
"The most difficult bit is still to do and to achieve it, it's important we have humility, are focused and fight for each other.
"That's what we did [tonight]. We were resilient and focused and you have seen a side to us that usually people don't know.
"It was the only way to get the result tonight and it's good to know that we can do that."
David Moyes felt his Everton side were robbed by assistant referee John Flynn, who wrongly disallowed Royston Drenthe's equaliser for offside.
Flynn angered Sir Alex Ferguson earlier this season for his part in Newcastle's controversial penalty at Old Trafford and Moyes said he got several offside calls wrong.
"There were five that were onside," he said. "I've checked and it was a goal.
"There were some really poor decisions in the game against us and it was the assistant who got them wrong.
"You can understand him getting one wrong, but it was really, really poor and it cost us as we tried to get something back after a disappointing start.
"I thought we were really unlucky not to get something from the game."
