One of Arsenal’s best performances last season came at Man City away when Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin bossed the midfield, and the Gunners tactics on the day worked out perfectly to secure a 2-0 win.
Perhaps the circumstances of this game are a little different, an end of season affair rather than having the intensity of one that might influence the title, but Danny Welbeck says the Gunners have to strive for more of the same.
The former Man Utd man will obviously have a bit extrea for this particular fixture, and he’s hoping his teammates can serve up more of the same.
“The performance was outstanding, from the first minute until the last,” he said.
“It was a great team performance, everyone worked hard throughout the game and I think tactically we were spot on with how we approached the match.
“I’ve got some good memories [at Man City], and a couple of bad ones as well. I think it’s important to focus on the next game coming and make sure that it’s another good memory.”
Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger hasn’t yet ruled out the possibility of finishing above Sp*rs this season.
“Our target is still to get in front of them if possible,” he said.
“At the moment it’s not done. If they do it, well done. We’ll fight until the end to make sure that we have a chance that we get in front of them.”
