"But it's not all about that, we don't just look at them. We want to finish as high as we can. We know it's going to be a tough game. It's at the Emirates, so we have to take the game to them," Wilshere added. 

The English international also said the London derby will be a massive match and they are focused to clinch three points from it. 

"We'll see. You're only as good as your last game. We lost our last game and we need to bounce back. It's a massive game, and we're looking to get three points. We'll be ready for it," Wilshere said.
