Arsenal midfielder Coquelin: Everyone here wants win today

Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin says everyone at the club want a third-place finish.

He would relish another chance to impress on Sunday, which will be the final game for long-serving Arsenal assistant manager Pat Rice before his retirement.

"It is the last game of the season and all the staff and all of the players want to end up with this third place," Coquelin said.

"It [third place] could have been finished after Norwich because after the other results we could have qualified for the Champions League, but we drew and now we need to win this game against West Brom.

"When we came back to the training ground on Monday everybody knew it would be a tough week.

"Everybody is concentrating on West Brom and I think everybody is ready to fight for this third place."
