Koscielny calls on Arsenal 'to stay together, to fight together'

13 - points behind rivals Tottenham in the race for fourth place and Champions League qualification.

Arsenal surely are in historically poor form, with their four straight losses the joint-most in club history.

"We are hypothetically speaking before people jump ahead of everything, (but) I have never backed down from a challenge since I was young". You could see during the Brighton game, we are not confident in our quality individually and collectively.

"It is what everyone has been saying of late: there are no characters, no fight, no desire, no passion to wear the shirt and that was evident", the 35-year-old, who missed the game at the Amex Stadium through injury, told talkSPORT.

"It will be very hard to finish in the top four".

"We have (had) a bad period and did not have the results we wanted".

"At the moment, we play too many games and are charged negatively on top of that because we lose them".

"We have to be realistic, we need two teams to collapse to qualify for the Champions League, and I don't see that happening". "It is a big period for us". It is important to have everyone behind us.

He said,"We know we are in a bad situation, a bad period".

'We tried but nothing is with us. "I come from a generation where Arsenal were a very special football club and they have slipped a long way from that", he said. We know we need to win to have a little bit more confidence in us.

'We lost our confidence a little bit and on the pitch we didn't have the confidence we need to push ourselves more and to play well with the ball. I can't see that at the moment because two teams to drop so many points is very hard to imagine.

"Back in the day, you knew you were going to be in for a tough game".

"It's easy to take the pants off as well, but when you are naked completely you have to find a shirt and try to put it on again, get dressed normally again".
