As Arsene Wenger said, it was vital that Arsenal returned to winning ways against Everton this weekend, and one of the heros of that game, David Ospina, told the Mail how important it was to keep picking up points in the title race.
“We were not nervous, we were sad after the Monaco result but in football you have to pick yourselves up quickly,” Ospina insisted. “Obviously it was a tough night on Wednesday but you have always got to bounce back and yesterday was a great way to show that we had done that.
“After what happened against Monaco, the only thing that was important was to win the big game to continue increasing our confidence and keeping heading up the table. Now we are already thinking about the next one, which is QPR.”
Asked whether Arsenal were thinking about overtaking Man City in second place, Ospina said: “We know we are close to them now but we need to concentrate on ourselves and not think about them. We will keep doing our job, picking up points and then see what happens.”
Another win against QPR on Wednesday will give them the added confidence going into the crucial FA Cup game at Old Trafford next weekend, and the Gunners can forget about the Monaco debacle until the return leg in France….
