Bernd Leno says that Arsenal are ready to capitalise on any errors from Manchester United and Chelsea in the race to finish in fourth place in the Premier League.
Goalkeeper Bernd Leno has claimed that Arsenal are ready to capitalise on any mistakes from the club’s rivals in the race for fourth position in the Premier League table.
Arsenal have endured an indifferent top-flight campaign, but the Gunners find themselves just one point adrift of Manchester United with 13 matches remaining.
Chelsea are also in the hunt for the final Champions League spot, but Leno has backed the North London outfit to outlast their nearest rivals.
The German stopper is quoted by the London Evening Standard as saying: “It is a good competition between all the teams. Chelsea played Manchester City and the gap to Manchester United is one point, so everything is possible.
“We wait for the other teams and if they make mistakes. We do our work to win every game and on Saturday we did the job. In two weeks, we have another league game and we want to work hard. Our last away win [in the league] was at Bournemouth in November. It was important for us to win and also to win away.”
Arsenal registered a 2-1 victory at Huddersfield Town at the weekend.
