Arsenal

Gunners must focus on ourselves - Kolasinac

3rd February 2019, 11:33 by Craig Smithson

Arsenal should forget about their Premier League top-four rivals and just focus on their own results, according to Sead Kolasinac.

The Gunners remain in what appears to be a three-team tussle for the final Champions League places with Chelsea and a resurgent Manchester United.

The midweek win against Cardiff moved Unai Emery's men into fourth place on goal difference ahead of Chelsea after they were crushed 4-0 at Bournemouth, while United are just two points behind them.

Maurizio Sarri's side moved back into fourth after defeating Huddersfield 5-0 with the Gunners and United in action later on Sunday.

However, full-back Kolasinac believes the Arsenal players only need to worry about their own performances and not look at the result of their nearest rivals.

"There's no point looking at other teams and saying where they are better," he said.

"It's about improving ourselves and not looking at other teams. We know after games what we've done well and what we haven't, what we need to work on. How we can improve is what is important."
