Main quotes from Steve Bould and Paul Lambert prior to Arsenal vs Stoke
The Arsenal assistant manager outlines the importance of performing well in the domestic competition.
Arsenal assistant manager Steve Bould:
"At this moment in time, not an awful great deal, we are concentrating on Sunday. It’s a big game for us we need a result.
"We are not stupid, it’s tough to finish in the top four. But if we are going to win a Europa League, then winning games now will help.
"We could do with a win, we need a pick up, we need to play well, get players fit again, get a full squad and see where we go from there."
Stoke City manager Paul Lambert:
"It's a really tough place to go. I've been fortunate I've won there, I know what it's like to win there, I know what it's like to lose there, I know what it's like to draw there.
"This is new, I'm new to the football club so what happened in the past is not an interest to me really. We'll make it a really hard game, we'll go and try and win, like I've always done, and it won't change. We have to find a way to hurt them."
