Bacary Sagna: Arsenal not looking at Tottenham in top-four race
Bacary Sagna says Arsenal aren't looking at Tottenham's results or their other top-four rivals as the season reaches its climax
Bacary Sagna insists Arsenal are not looking at the fortunes of Tottenham and their other top-four rivals as the race for Champions League qualification hots up.
The Gunners closed the gap to fourth-placed Tottenham to just two points following their win at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
Arsenal can move above their local rivals if they win their game in hand – but Sagna insists that Arsene Wenger’s men are purely focused on emerging victorious from their remaining seven matches and not other teams’ results.
“We knew we have to take it game by game and take maximum points,” Sagna told Arsenal Player.
“We’re on a good run and we want to keep that going because we still have six weeks to go until the end of the season and we want to qualify for the Champions League.
“We don’t want to look at other teams. We just want to look at our own team and finish in the top four.”
Arsenal host Norwich City at Emirates Stadium on Saturday in their next Premier League fixture.
