Yohan Cabaye believes that the squad showed in the victory a week ago against Chelsea that they have the quality to go into Monday night's meeting with Arsenal with a positive attitude.
"The squad have the right mentality at the moment and it is important to stay in a positive state of mind and to focus on doing the right things at the right time when we are out on the pitch. We know the games we have still to come, we have already shown last weekend that we can get something from the team at the top of the table but every game is totally different. We need to show our desire and determination and we know we have quality within our squad but it’s no good just saying that, you have to work really hard as a group to get the points."
Arsenal followed up their draw against Manchester City with a convincing home win against West Ham United in midweek but the 31 year old midfielder believes they will be in for a tough night during their visit to south London.
"We will go into the match in a confident frame of mind and believe we can win the game. We know what the atmosphere will be like with our fans behind us.
“It's very important and a very big game, we are still in this bad position so we need to stay focused on our target and show them it's going to be tough for them to get something from the game.
"We work hard, really hard to be better on the pitch, individually and as a team and we have the quality to play well and get the win.
"The team is the most important thing and we have shown that when we play as a team and as a unit, we are difficult to play against and we can get points."
