Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has warned his side to buck their ideas up if they are to make sure of a top-four finish, following the 4-1 thrashing at Liverpool.
The Gunners are just five points clear of fifth-placed Bolton and Wenger pulled no punches about the abject display he witnessed at Anfield.
He said: "Defensively our performance was horrendous. Liverpool more than deserved to win. They were more mobile, sharper and determined.
"If we want to finish third now, we will have to produce better performances than that between now and the end of the season.
"We are not certain of being in the top four. There is not a big enough gap, even if maybe my players felt they had done enough.
"That is not the case. We will have to give our best in every game now, we must win all our home matches and pick up some away wins too.
"My players are now concerned about the situation. They did not produce what was expected."
