Arsenal manager Unai Emery says his side will fight hard to reach the Top Four, but insists it won’t be easy to succeed.
A 2-1 victory over Huddersfield Town at the weekend has brought the Gunners to within a point of fourth-placed Manchester United and level on points with Chelsea, who have a game in hand.
A goal each from the Alexes – Iwobi and Lacazette – helped Arsenal to recover from their 3-1 defeat at the hands of Man City with a much-needed win, even if a late Sead Kolasinac own goal took the shine off the result.
The club’s Spanish manager has said they will keep fighting in their quest to qualify for next season’s Champions League, but admitted it will be a ‘difficult’ task for them to do so.
“This victory was very important, the points and to be closer to the top four,’’ Emery told his post-match presser.
”And our target is this, knowing we need to take the regularity at home and away above all.
“Today this victory can give us confidence, the possibility to continue with our target in the Premier League.
“We are at the moment one point off Manchester United. If we ask is it easy or difficult, it’s difficult.
“But we can and day 26 we are on our way. Our motivation is very great and every player wants to struggle every match and be consistent over 38 matches.
“We are moving closer to the other clubs.
