Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal has insisted that the team can end the season on a positive note by qualifying for the Champions League.
The Gunners, who host Reading in the Premier League on Saturday, are currently four points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the table with a game in hand.
Despite a number of setbacks during the campaign, Monreal is confident that the side can put things right before May.
"We still have matches left to fix the situation and to try to meet our objectives," the Spaniard told the club's official website.
"It is 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 are thinking of what people are saying, you are 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 am sure we will put it right."
Monreal has scored one goal in six games for Arsenal following his January move from Malaga.
