There has been no official confirmation from the Premier League over what happens to its fourth Champions League spot following Manchester City's two-year ban.

?Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has issued a rally cry to his players as the club looks to qualify for next season's Champions League, stressing the next two or three weeks could make or break the rest of their campaign.

Speaking ahead of Arsenal's return from the inaugural winter break, Arteta says he's still targeting Champions League qualification and believes the club can compete if they can build up some momentum over the next few weeks. "

The Gunners are sitting 10 points behind Chelsea in fourth place, but Friday's news that Manchester City would be banned from UEFA competitions for the next two years could make a fifth-place finish in the Premier League good enough for qualification to Europe's elite competition.

The next two or three weeks is going to dictate how close we are going to be in the last four or five weeks of the season to challenge for the European spots or not," Arteta said, quoted by  FourFourTwo " I think winning takes you to winning the next game and the confidence related to that is huge, which in football the mental aspect is more important than anything else.
