Arsène Wenger insists Arsenal will “give absolutely the maximum” until the end of the season.
The Gunners will move back into third place in the Premier League if they beat West Bromwich Albion at Emirates Stadium on Thursday evening.
Recent draws against West Ham United and Crystal Palace have frustrated Wenger, but he says his side will give their all to finish as high in the table as possible.
"We have values at this club that we respect and that we have to respect until the last minute of the season"
“It is important, of course,” he said. “We want to win our games, instead of focusing the table I think it is very important to focus on the process and quality of what we do.
“At the moment that is frustrating as there is a lot of quality in our game, but we have not exactly got the wins that we wanted. We have to focus on that.
“We want to finish as high as we can. It is not a consolation, it is about getting the best out of the team and focusing and giving everything in every single game. We need to show we have the mental level to compete until the end.
“Our job is to give absolutely the maximum until the last day of the season. You expect that from ambitious, professional football players.
“We have values at this club that we respect and that we have to respect until the last minute of the season.”
