Gibbs demands title focus

12 January 2014 11:37

Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs has urged his side to retain their title focus as they compete at the top of the Premier League.

The London club are back in the title picture after a number of seasons scrapping for a place in the division's top four.

After an opening-day defeat at home to Aston Villa, pressure was heaped on Arsene Wenger, but the subsequent signing of Mesut Ozil and a string of consistent performances have brightened the atmosphere at the Emirates Stadium significantly.

Arsenal travel to Villa Park looking to take their revenge on Monday and Gibbs has hailed a renewed sense of belief among the players.

The England international was also quick to point out that only securing silverware will satisfy the squad after eight barren seasons following 2005's FA Cup triumph.

He is quoted by The Daily Star: "A trophy constitutes a successful season for Arsenal this year.

"There is certainly a belief. We're in January and up there so we have to take that as a huge positive and behave like we are favourites.

"We have to remain positive. We've seen this season there are crazy results happening in the league."
