Granit Xhaka reveals Arsenal’s priorities for the season as Gunners chase Champions League spot

Arsenal won 1-0 in an away game against Watford. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goal was the only goal of the clash.

After the game,  Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has revealed the team’s priorities as Premier League is edging closer to the end.

“I think we want to stay in the top four – we want to be back in the Champions League,” Xhaka said.

“I think, for me, the Premier League is first and after if you can go to the final and take the Europa League, of course it is nice as well but for us it is the Premier League first.

“I don’t care if we win 1-0 or 6-0, it is the same three points. For me it is better if you play like this and you win, then when we have played away and played better games but not taken the three points. I am happy for this performance, but most important is the three points.

“I think for us the biggest game was today, it is always like this,” Xhaka added.

“At Everton we had a big chance to be [third]. We are now in fourth place, two points over United, one game less than Chelsea and one point behind Tottenham and they play against City next week, it can be a big, big weekend for us.”

Currently the Gunners are 4th in the league with 66 points and are preparing for the Europa League clash with Napoli on April 18.
