Arsenal assistant manager Steve Bould reckons they have the edge in the battle for a top four finish.
Ahead of them in third and fourth spot respectively are Tottenham and Chelsea but both are scrapping it out for this season's Europa League crown.
Bould said: "It's extremely tough, the travel.
"I think sometimes if a negative result comes along within that time span, it can affect your season.
"It's going to be tough. Players like to play. I think we have got to concentrate on us, concentrate on what we do and concentrate on winning games."
