Wojciech Szczesny: Says Arsenal's first target is to get back in the top fou

The Polish goalkeeper believes Arsene Wenger's team can return to top form following a disappointing display against Aston Villa at the weekend.

Speaking ahead of this week's match away to fellow Champions League hopefuls Everton, Szczesny said: "It would be a very good result, it will be a six-pointer.

"We managed to get three points last year and it was a really tough match. We are outside the top four so our first target is to reach that top four."

The Gunners' recent performances have been heavily criticised and Szczesny knows this all too well, adding: "I think the last two matches, against Tottenham and Montpellier, offensively we have played really well.

"We have had a few disappointing performances before that, so it is important we get back to that level."

Wenger's side are currently ten points behind leaders Manchester United and five points off a top four spot.

The Gunners' recent form and management has been heavily scrutinised, with fans questioning Wenger's methods, but Szczesny still believes they can have a successful season.

He said: "Our ambitions are much higher. We have had a couple of good results recently. It would have been good if we had won at Villa but we shall take it game by game and hope for the best."

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.
