Arsenal now target Man City

Goalkeeper David Ospina has urged his Arsenal team-mates to focus on sustaining their own performance levels as they aim to capitalise on any more off days from Manchester City in the race for second place in the Barclays Premier League.

The Gunners put the shock of the 3-1 Champions League home defeat to Monaco behind them with a determined display to see off Everton 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. Arsenal are now only four points behind defending champions City as they prepare for tomorrow night’s trip to relegation battlers QPR, where they are likely to be without midfielder Francis Coquelin because of a broken nose.

Ospina believes consistency from themselves is all that matters.

“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 see what happens,” said Ospina.
