Arsenal focusing on PL, not Europa: Xhaka

Granit Xhaka has said that Arsenal are focusing on the Premier League top four spot rather than the Europa League trophy.

“I think we want to stay in the top four – we want to be back in the Champions League,” said the Switzerland international. I think, for me, the Premier League is first and after if you can go to the final and take the Europa League, of course it is nice as well but for us it is the Premier League first.”

“I think for us the biggest game was last night, it is always like this. We are now in fourth place, two points over United, one game less than Chelsea and one point behind Tottenham and they play against Manchester City next week. It can be a big, big weekend for us.”

I don’t care if we win 1-0 or 6-0, it is the same three points,” he added. “For me, it is better if you play like this and you win, than when we have played away and played better games but not taken the three points. I am happy for this performance, but most important is the three points.”

“I think against Napoli it is a different game. We had a good result at home, 2-0, but it will not be easy in Napoli as you have seen with Liverpool there or Paris [Saint-Germain]. Napoli have a good team, especially with their fans, but 2-0 is a good result and I hope we can go to the semi-final.”
