Arsenal midfielder Kim Kallstrom believes that his experience can help the Gunners secure Champions League qualification this season.

The 31-year-old - on loan from Spartak Moscow - made his first start in the 3-1 win over West Ham United on Tuesday, partnering Mikel Arteta in the heart of midfield.

The victory over the Hammers propelled Arsene Wenger's men back into the top-four in the standings, and the Sweden international - who has over 100 caps for his country - says that experience could prove key in trumping the Toffees.

"I think that my experience is one of the reasons why he [manager Arsene Wenger] bought me here," he told the club's official website.

"I have some experience and I felt quite comfortable going into my first game. It's nice to complete a game, it's a long time since I played so it was a nice moment for me.

"We got the win that we really needed to get back in a new pace for the final four games."

The North Londoners, who sit one point ahead of their Merseyside counterparts, continue their top-four bid with a visit to Hull City on Sunday.
