I don’t mind about the other teams though, if we are in the top four everything is OK for me!’Should the Gunners miss out on the top four, they can still qualify for the Champions League should they win the Europa League having reached the semi finals of the competition for the second season in succession.‘Both ways are very difficult,’ he added. ‘We play Valencia, who are a strong team, then in the final we could play Chelsea. That is very difficult and in the Premier League we have three away games.‘I can’t say which way is more difficult…We have to focus on every game and win against Wolves. I think 10 points could be enough, but I don’t know.’More: Manchester United FCRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseEx-Man Utd coach blasts Ed Woodward for two key transfer errors Advertisementlast_img
