Arteta confident of exciting end of season for Arsenal

Mikel Arteta says Arsenal are excited about the finish to the 2020/21 season.

The Gunners face Everton in the league on Friday before next week's Europa League semi-final against Villarreal.

"It's been a really challenging week for everybody in world football but we have to move forward," our manager said.

"[Everton] are having a really good season, we are not getting the results that we want - against Fulham where the result was disappointing apart from the performance, which in my opinion we totally deserved to win the game. But we need to win every game now in the Premier League to give us the best possible chance to be in Europe next season through that competition.

"I think we do [have momentum], and the way we are playing as well. But the Fulham game, not winning that one was a real shame for us because that would have put us in a much better position.

"But we have to move on, we still have a lot to play for in the league and playing the semi-finals of the Europa League so we are all excited about the way we can finish this season."
