Mikel Arteta was reflecting on Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Tottenham on Sunday.
And, following their Premier League victory over Tottenham rivals in the North London derby, the Arsenal boss said the Gunners are still watching the top-four finish in search of Champions League football.
Alexandre Lacazette’s second-half penalty helped Arsenal beat Tottenham 2-1 on Sunday.
So, Arteta celebrated his first victory of the Premier League against Spurs since taking the lead.
Arsenal is 10th in the Premier League standings – 10 points out of the top four with 10 rounds left.
And Arteta has not given up on the Champions League qualification.
“Up until mathematically it’s impossible we’re going to believe and we’re going to give it a go that is for sure,” Arteta, who replaced Unai Emery in December 2019, said in his post-match news conference.
“We know that we’re going to have to be extremely consistent, to have any chance in the last two or three matches to be close to that.
“But we’re going to give it a go and we’re going to keep trying, going game-by-game.”
