ARSENE WENGER says his side are targeting second-place after their 3-1 win over Hull.

The Gunners drew level with Manchester City on 70 points with victory at the KC Stadium.

Wenger's side have a game in hand on the 2013-14 champions, against relegation-threatened Sunderland.

And the Arsenal boss has challenged his team to keep up their fine form and secure the runners-up spot as they prepare for their FA Cup final showdown with Aston Villa.

Wenger said: "We created some good moments today, overall I could see a good mix between focus, fluency and confidence - and with the technical qualities we have we created some good moments.

"It is all about finishing second for us, step by step, I believe now we are certain to make the top four and now it is about finishing second but even more so to keep the quality high and concentrate on the next game.

"Being in the cup final helps us to keep our concentration but I feel we have made progress and we want to continue to develop as a team.

"Jack Wilshere returned and had a good game in his 25 minutes so that is a big positive.

"Aaron Ramsey got a big kick and that is swollen but it should not be too bad."

The Unbeaten In Manchester Season

By Goonerholic

I saw talk before the match of Arsene setting up to go with an attacking gameplay having secured victories at City and United this season playing a much more compact game than usual. It was no surprise, given those two results, that once again we set our stall at Old Trafford to defend first and foremost, and look to hit the home side on the counter.
