Arsenal fullback Nacho Monreal says the players are ignoring the critics as they hunt down a top four finish.
Monreal admits the squad knows they've fallen short this season.
"It’s logical that people talk because the situation has not been as it should be, but the players and Club in general have to ensure that doesn’t affect us. We have to use our energy for the matches. If you’re thinking of what people are saying, you’re wasting that energy. You have to concentrate on the next match. Every fixture now is a final we have to win. That has to be our mentality. I’m sure we’ll put it right," he told arsenal.com.
