Gervinho maintains everyone at Arsenal should be proud if the Gunners end a testing campaign in the Barclays Premier League with third place to show for their efforts.

The Gunners, who appear set to be without midfielder Mikel Arteta for their final four matches because of an ankle injury, host Chelsea on Saturday aiming to bounce back from the disappointment of Monday night's shock 2-1 home defeat by Wigan.

Gervinho said: "Everybody is determined to fight until the end, from the players and the manager to the fans, to maintain third place. If we manage to keep it then everybody should be proud because we fought very hard for it."
