Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says his side must beat Tottenham Hotspur in the north-London derby on Wednesday.
After drawing with Liverpool, the Gunners lie six points behind Manchester United with six games remaining.
Both sides face crunch games in mid-week, as United travel to Newcastle United, while Arsenal face Spurs, a game Wenger says the club have to win.
“We will have to give everything until the last game of the season,” he said.
“I don't know if it's our year or not. We have been badly done in our last three home games. It's a period when we have not had the biggest luck, that's for sure.
“We have to win the next game now. The hope is always there but to keep the hope alive we have to win our games. We are on a 15-game unbeaten run but recently have not taken enough points.”
Wenger will be hoping his side can significantly reduce the gap at the top in time for their meeting with United at the Emirates on May 1st.
