Goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny believes that Arsenal should aim to finish third in the Premier League after seeing their Champions League hopes come to an end.
The Gunners, who are 4/9 with bet365 to finish in the top four, roared to a 3-0 win over AC Milan at the Emirates Stadium, but were unable to undo the damage done by a 4-0 thrashing in the San Siro in the first leg of their last-16 tie.
However, Szczesny sees plenty of reasons to be positive for the closing weeks of the campaign, with Arsenal having beaten Spurs and Liverpool in their last two league games.
The Gunners’ North London rivals are now just four points ahead in the battle for third place, with Polish keeper Szczesny aiming to change that situation before the season draws to a close.
He told Sky Sports: “I wouldn’t settle now for fourth place. We’re four points behind the other North London club and hopefully we can challenge them.
“Hopefully Chelsea can challenge them for a fourth spot as well. I’d be really pleased to see Tottenham in the Europa League next season.”
