Arsenal recorded a vital 3-0 win over Newcastle United last night, as goals from Laurent Koscielny, Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud moved the Gunners four points clear of Everton in the race for fourth place, and with just two games to go, one more win can seal Champions League football once again. Manager Arsene Wenger noted the harmony in the team, and says he is looking for his side to get that win against West Bromwich Albion this weekend.

"It was a bit of a slow start but we got a grip on the game and became stronger," he said. "We controlled the second half well. You could see there is a harmony in the team again and our fluency is strong. Now that people are back and everyone is confident again you can see that we always look like we can score,"

"It is about getting over the line and finishing the job now. We want to do it on Sunday against West Brom, who are a dangerous team as well. It would be nice to do it as quickly as possible but let's focus on taking as many points as we can. We are at 73 points, with six more points possible and 79 would be a decent total and show as well that we have moved forward," he concluded.

A top four finish is what the club will have been aiming for before the start of the season, Arsenal's title bid has fallen apart and midfielder Aaron Ramsey has admitted his disappointment at falling off the pace in the second half of the season, saying the Gunners 'need to be more streetwise' next season.

"We've had a lot of injuries to key players at the same time which did affect us, but that's football. Things happen like that. Obviously you do have thoughts going through your mind about what could have been," said Ramsey.

"The only games that have let us down this year are against the top-five away from home: if we'd managed to nick a couple of results against Manchester City, Liverpool, Everton and Chelsea the gap would have been a lot smaller and we'd have been right there. That'll be something to improve on next season - we'll need to be more streetwise in those games," he added.

The Gunners will also be expected to strengthen their squad this summer, but it seems Wenger is set to miss out on of his top targets as Nurnberg striker Josip Drmic is reportedly set for a move to Bayer Leverkusen. The prolific Swiss international had allegedly caught Wenger's eye after an impressive season, but reports in Germany suggest the 21-year-old will move to Leverkusen this summer.
