The North London club beat Everton 2-0 on Sunday to take them to within four points of last season’s champions. The Sky Blues lost 2-1 at to Liverpool at Anfield on the same day. Were they to overtake the Citizens it would manager Arsene Wenger’s highest finish since 2005, when they won the competition.
Ospina said: “It is game after game. We know we are close to them [Man City] now, but we need to concentrate on ourselves and not think about them. We will keep doing our job, picking up points and then see what happens.”
Finishing in second would not bring the Gunners any bonuses in terms of the Champions League, but would be a matter of pride for the team that has been widely panned at times this campaign. Their recent loss to AS Monaco was a notable occasion when this happened.
Next up for Arsenal is a trip to Loftus Road to play QPR. The R’s have a good record at home this season, and will not be a pushover.
