Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech can not hide his disappointment following the 2-0 North London derby loss against Tottenham Hotspur.
Arsenal retain a game in hand, however, and their disappointment was mitigated by the fact top-four rivals Manchester City and Manchester United both dropped points earlier in the day.
Asked if 17 points was a fair reflection of the gap between Tottenham and Arsenal this season, Wenger said: "Look, the points are the points".
A deflated Arsene Wenger said: "We did lose the game in a very quick space of time, and after that it took us time to recover". We need to win the remaining games and hope that some of the others slip up.
"Now we have to be focused because we have a very important game at West Ham now on Friday". Victory at Upton Park would for once put the pressure on Chelsea, who do not play until Middlesbrough, desperate for points to avoid relegation, visit them three days later.

Frankie Edgar Dominates Yair Rodriguez After Two Brutal Rounds
Rodriguez is still one of the talented young fighters in the game today, and he'll be back climbing the ranks soon enough. In between rounds, the doctor's decided that Rodriguez's golf ball-sized eye was too damaged to continue.
It's been a tumultuous season on and off the pitch for the Gunners, and this isn't the first time that AFTV has made the headlines.
"We will have the chance to play before and if we are able to win at West Ham [on Friday].it will be a tough game and a hard game and if we are able to win we will see what happens". Speaking after the match the Spurs chief said: "I feel very proud". We could end up on 89 and still not win the league! In the penultimate game at White Hart Lane before the stadium is demolished, Dele Alli scrambled the ball into the net and Harry Kane won a soft penalty that he converted. At half-time I felt we were in the game and in the second half we wanted to improve, we wanted to play to win the game. "We had great support and were full of confidence".
Alli, who headed wide from five yards out in the first half, added: "I have to blame myself a bit for my header at the far post - I was kicking myself for missing that - but we dominated from the start".
"I think we are still in the race. We have to play more and create more than we did today". It is fantastic for us too.
