Arsenal stopper Wojciech Szczesny has urged his teammates to keep fighting for the Barclays Premier League title.

The Gunners dropped valuable points against Liverpool at the Emirates, with the late drama in north London leaving Arsene Wenger's side six points behind leaders Manchester United.

However, a fixture against their rivals on May 1st gives Arsenal cause for optimism, and the Polish goalkeeper believes the battle is far from over for the championship.

"We are only thinking about winning the title, not who is behind us," said Szczesny ahead of tomorrow's derby against Tottenham Hotspur.


"We still have to play Manchester United and they also have to play Chelsea - they will drop points. We believe we are good enough to win every game from now until the end of the season, so we believe we can do it."

"We go into everything to finish first. We are Arsenal - we don't want to finish second and we definitely don't want to finish third. We just think about winning."

Szczesny also stressed the importance of a performance from the Gunners against their rivals to repay the faith of the fans, who have stuck by their side through a difficult couple of months.

"We owe it to the fans as well because they are obviously very disappointed about what happened. We owe them a result at White Hart Lane."
