Kieran Gibbs says Arsenal's fate rests in their own hands as they approach their final three games of the season.

Following Saturday's goalless draw with Chelsea, the Gunners lie three points clear of fourth-placed Newcastle, although the North-East club have a game in hand.

But Gibbs insists Arsène Wenger's side must not worry about their rivals amid a tense finale to the campaign.

"It has been tight all season. A lot of teams are competing and anything can happen," he told Arsenal Player.

"We have to finish the season strongly. The way we see it is that if we win our three games then we secure our position. We have three cup finals left to play.

"We shouldn't lose focus now. We have nine points to win, and we have a position to secure for next season. We must do that."
