Arsenal boss Unai Emery was eager to move on from blowing their top four chances after their 1-1 draw with Brighton.
Glenn Murray levelled from the penalty spot to cancel out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s ninth-minute effort for the Gunners.
Emery said, “It’s not the moment to talk about next season. I think we need to be strong and be together for next Thursday, which will be a big challenge for us in another competition in which we can do something important.
“We are going to try to do something. We are very, very disappointed. We spoke [before] the game to finish about our ambition and motivation to finish here with a victory and also to take our chances [to try] and finish fourth. But really, today, Brighton worked very well defensively. They deserved this point [because of their work]. But also I think we tired and [missed] chances to score the second.”
He added: “The Premier League is the best competition to give us our regularity, our consistency. If we are 27 points behind the leaders, that’s the difference. But we are going to work and build up our future. This season is also about learning and continuing to create our way. Our way is in the future to make the difference in the table less to these teams.”
