Mikel Arteta said he was still optimistic that Arsenal could catch Chelsea for the last Champions League place.

Arsenal are currently 10 points behind Chelsea.

“At the moment we are far from it, but there are a lot of games to play. It is very tight. Everybody is giving points away. It will depend on us. If we are able to put three or four wins in a row, we will be much closer," said Arteta.

Arsenal have only won twice in the Premier League since October 6th.

Arteta then outlined what he wants to see from his squad for the rest of the season.

“It is our principle, our style of play and how we manage the games, how we manage each section of the pitch and clarity. That the players have clarity when they jump into the football pitch, that they know and they can recognise the scenarios they are facing and they have the tools for the solutions.”
