Wojciech Szczesny has insisted that Arsenal don’t have to “play beautiful” to win their remaining games and secure fourth place.

The Gunners limped to an unconvincing 3-1 victory over West Ham United at The Emirates, with Arsenal leapfrogging Everton into fourth place ahead of the Toffees’s clash against Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

Every game is like a cup final for us now and we know we have to get the result every time and wait for Everton to drop points

And Szczesy insisted that Arsenal’s results – and not their performances – are the most important thing at this time of the season.

“The energy level was not great after we played 120 minutes on Saturday, but it was important to get three points,” Szczesny said.

“I will take four or five more games like that until the end of the season. As long as we get three points, it does not have to be beautiful.”

Szczesny added that Arsenal have four “cup finals” left to secure a place in next season’s Champions League.

“Every game is like a cup final for us now and we know we have to get the result every time and wait for Everton to drop points,” added Szczesny.

“Before the four disappointing results we had recently we were still in the title race, so it has slipped away from us.

“But it is important for us to fight for the new challenge, which is the top four now. We are confident we are going to do the job.”
