Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina has stated that the squad are looking up the table, rather than over their shoulders, and have champions Manchester City firmly within their sights.
After the 2-0 victory on Sunday against Everton and Man City losing to Liverpool earlier on in the day, we are four points off second place.
Liverpool, in fifth place, are trailing us by three points which still makes finishing outside the top four a realistic possibility, but Ospina is certainly remaining optimistic.

The Colombian kept his fourth clean sheet in seven league appearances and continues to keep Wojciech Szczesny on the bench.
“We know we are close to them now but we need to concentrate on ourselves and not think about them,” Ospina told the Evening Standard.

“We will keep doing our job, picking up points and then see what happens.”
With a kind fixture list remaining in the Premier League, a trip to Queens Park Rangers is up next and we have a real chance to cement third place and possibly put the pressure on Man City to slip-up.
