Arsenal have seven cup finals left to ensure a place in next season’s Champions League, according to Aaron Ramsey, who has implored the team to fight until the season's finish.

The Gunners currently sit seventh in the Premier League, seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester City with a game in hand.

Ramsey believes that, despite having an FA Cup final to look forward to in May, Arsenal must retain focus on hunting down City, Manchester United and Liverpool.

“We are in the final now so have something to look forward to,” Ramsey told Arsenal’s official website.

“Now we have seven finals in the Premier League to try and get into that fourth position.

“It is going to be an exciting end but one that we are more than up for.”

The Gunners came back from a goal behind in Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against Man City thanks to a Nacho Monreal equaliser and an extra-time strike from Alexis Sanchez.

Arsenal will be looking to win the competition for a record 13th time and Ramsey believes that his side’s team spirit helped them to make the final.

“We just stick together as a team,” the Welsh midfielder added.

“We know what we’re capable of doing. It is just about repeating that in every game.

“We played against a top-quality team with some unbelievable and we stood up to the test. We did answer that and have shown what we are all about.”

Arsenal host Leicester City on Wednesday as they look to carry on their quest for European qualification in the midst of uncertainty over Arsene Wenger’s future.

The coach has refused to commit himself to a new contract that the club have tabled him, although it's suspected that he'll remain at the Emirates for another year.
