Oliver Giroud has warned his Arsenal teammates that every game they face will be difficult, citing Chelsea’s loss to Southampton as evidence that the run-in could throw up some unwelcome surprises if we’re not careful.
The Gunners have won 5 of their last 6 Premier League games, and while the HFB is confident, he knows that full focus is required for the final games of the season.
“We take the games one by one,” he said. “Spurs have to play against Manchester City and Chelsea so it’s hard games for them. But every game is difficult, we can see that Chelsea lost in Southampton.
“We have to keep focused, concentrated and strong.”
The Frenchman, who got his first league goal in 8 games against Reading, is confident that the team can finish the season as strongly as they need to.
Yes, we are playing well. We succeed to score lots of goals.
“We need to be more concentrated when we are defending, because we need more clean sheets because we dominate the games. We want to be ambitious and keep our focus.
“We want to dictate the games. We are confident. We are used to finishing the Premier League season well. And again this season we will do the same.”
With Giroud back on the scoresheet, Gervinho finding someone else’s shooting boots, and Podolski back in the frame, let’s hope we’ve got enough firepower to get us over the line.
