Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta emphasized the importance of topping the group
The Gunners have put themselves in a great position with a win against PSV in the Europa League. The Gunners are currently one point away from securing a qualification to the knoc messi psg away shirt kout stages.
They are well on course to finish at the top of the group as well. The winner of the group will have the privilege of playing lesser games in the Europa League. In the year of the FIFA World Cup, that might turn out to be beneficial.
While speaking to the media ahead of the game against PSV, Arteta emphasized the importance of finishing at the top of the group as he said (via arsenal.com):
"Really important. In Europe when you have the chance to take advantage you have to do it. It’s always very unpredictable what can happen in the next game. You have to go away and we know the level of the other teams as well. What I can say watching them [PSV] and what they are doing domestically, internationally, [it will be] a really tough match."
The Gunners will next face Southampton away on Sunday, October 23.
