Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny believes his side’s games with Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool are vital in the race to finish in the top four.
The Gunners are in a four-horse race to finish in the final two Champions League spots with Everton and Tottenham, with West Brom are still hovering.
“It is very difficult, it is a race and I think there are five or six teams who can finish in the top four,” he told Arsenal Player.
“Every game you [look out for] the other scores, but if you don’t win your match then it is nothing to see these results. It is very important to get the three points every time and then look for the other scores afterwards.
“Every weekend is difficult, it is a little war. It is very important to fight together until the finish.
“Now we have a lot of very important games against teams who want to play in next season’s Champions League so it is vital to stay focused on these matches and win.”
