Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has challenged his players to focus on sustaining their own fine form rather than challenging for the Premier League title or dealing a potentially fatal blow to Liverpool’s Champions League ambitions on Saturday.
The Gunners resume domestic duty looking to make it seven successive Premier League victories, a run which has fired them back up to third place, and just a point behind Manchester City.
Liverpool, meanwhile, are fifth following a home defeat by Manchester United before the international break, with leaves them five points short of the top four.
Wenger, though, intends to take things one target at a time, with a belated title bid not theoretically out of the question should Arsenal’s superb run continue.
“I am not too much in mathematics now, we do that after the game. What is important for me is just for us to win the game and produce the performance,” said Wenger.
“At the moment I am in front of a game like that and I just want to make sure we have a quality performance and have a continuity of what we produced recently.
“You know after the international break it is always important that you come back and straight away you are on it.”
On the top-four race, Wenger added: “Every year it is different and every year you have a new problem. We are at the moment in a strong position, there is an opportunity to strengthen it, and that’s what we want to focus on.”
