The Gunners boss wants his side to just focus on the 90 minutes

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has called on his side to forget about the Champions League perumations when they head to West Brom on Sunday and just play the game.

The Gunners must win in order to guarantee third place in the league as Newcastle and Tottenham are on hand to potentially take advantage on any slip-up.

“We have a massive game in front of us, but I feel we are focused, switched on. I am confident we will do well,” said the Arsenal boss.

“For us it is just to find the right mixture - to be focused, combative and relaxed, and especially be faithful to play our football like we want to.

“At the end of the day it will be down to playing well, no matter what is at stake.”
