Yaya Sanogo admits that it is Arsenal’s “duty” to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

The Gunners are currently fourth in the Premier League heading into the final three games of the season as they bid to qualify for Europe’s elite club competition for the 17th straight season.

We have been participants for 16 years so we want to be there again

And striker Sanogo is desperate to help Arsene Wenger’s men book their place in the competition once again.

“It is very important for such a great club as Arsenal to be in the Champions League. It is a duty,” Sanogo told Arsenal Player.

“We really want to get qualified. We have been participants for 16 years so we want to be there again. To do that we have to give our best on the pitch, give 100 per cent in every single match.

“We were very happy [to get back in front of Everton] because we have come from a difficult place. The wins over Wigan and then West Ham and Hull have given a boost to our morale.”
