Andre Santos insists the whole Arsenal squad is fully focused on ending the campaign in style ahead of a title push next season.

The Gunners are three points clear of fourth-placed Newcastle with three games remaining, although the North-East club have one match in hand.

Santos was pleased with the team’s committed display in Saturday’s stalemate against Chelsea and believes it bodes well for next season.

“When it comes to a derby I think it was a good result - Chelsea are not an easy team to beat, they have excellent players,” he said.

“I congratulate our squad for their fight and now we need to work hard to carry on winning.

“We need to qualify for next year's Champions League. We need to finish well and carry on next year to compete for the title.

“This is a big club and deserves better. All we want are trophies.”
