Laurent Koscielny says Arsenal's remaining home fixtures could be decisive to their Premier League title hopes.

The Gunners have won all their games at Emirates Stadium this season, bar the opening-day defeat to West Ham, their 1-1 draw with Tottenham in the north London derby and the 0-0 draw with Liverpool.

Our seven away games will be very difficult because we play against Man City, Man United, Tottenham, West Ham, Everton, so we need to do the job well at home so we have the points.

Koscielny says the team will need to maintain that run and pick up points in their remaining seven away games of the campaign if they are to achieve their aims.

“If you want to win the Premier League, you need to win all you home games,” he told Arsenal Player. “Our seven away games will be very difficult because we play against Man City, Man United, Tottenham, West Ham, Everton, so we need to do the job well at home so we have the points.

"We take each game and we will see. We want to play and win all games. We are in a period where we play many different competitions, we play the Champions League, the FA Cup, Premier League.

“This weekend is an important game and next weekend too, because it is the FA Cup and we won it twice and we want to continue like this. In February March, we will have Champions League so we need to take it game by game and that’s it."
