LONDON, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 27: Bernd Leno of Arsenal celebrates his sides fourth goal during the Premier League match between Arsenal FC and AFC Bournemouth at Emirates Stadium on February 27, 2019 in London, United Kingdom.
While Manchester United vs Liverpool, and then the Carabao Cup final between Manchester City and Chelsea, occupy the headline slot, Unai Emery's side will fly somewhat under the radar for the visit of Southampton.
"We are not looking at the table at the moment because we still have a lot of games to play", the Armenian told the Daily Mail.
The Gunners now sit in fourth place in the league standings after taking 53 points from their 27 games, one point ahead of Manchester United and three clear of Chelsea.
"It is not the main thing at the moment".
"I'm very happy because the players worked a lot, and we decided to make some changes to bring in new players, to keep up the energy".
Arsenal cruised to a 2-0 win over disjointed Southampton thanks to first-half goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Henrikh Mkhitaryan at The Emirates on Sunday, taking them back into the top four in the Premier League. "The most important thing is to stay focused and keep winning games". In the first half we played very well but we wanted to carry on in the second, but it's not easy 90 minutes with this intensity.
"The second goal was a awful mistake where we don't have to take such a risk", a rather downcast Saints manager Ralph Hassenhuettl told reporters. We put four at the back and more players up front so we could get closer to them and make sure their midfielders were not playing those balls between the lines. "That reaction was good, but probably not enough".
