Midfielder Tomas Rosicky is confident that Arsenal will end their season on a high.

Rosicky scored the opening goal in The Gunners' 3-1 victory at home to Manchester City on Tuesday night that propelled them to third in the Premiership.

The 26-year-old now has his sights set on UEFA Champions League qualification with just four games remaining.

"We enjoyed the game, our fans are excited about the fact we are back on a winning track and the end of the season looks more optimistic for us now," Rosicky told his personal website.

"Both Bolton and Everton are already sufficiently behind us and although we have not yet definitely qualified for the UEFA Champions League, we can play the rest of the league a little more relaxed.

"Moreover, we have got a good chance of clinching the third spot ahead of Liverpool. There are still four games to play in the competition and already Saturday's one can be the key one to the final results.

"We play the derby against Tottenham which is always a special day for the fans. We have been successful in them this season, we have beaten them 3-0 in the league and we also eliminated them from the Carling Cup. If we did the same on Saturday, it would be great."

Rosicky scored after 12 minutes against City with his left foot, his second in two games, although the Czech Republic player is not bothered with which foot he scores with, so long as he continues to hit the back of the net.

"I am surprised that I managed to score again with my left foot. I score left-footed goals very rarely and now I have scored two of them," Rosicky told his personal website.

"Anyway, if I continue in this way, then I don't care if it is with my left or right foot.

"My goal was really very similar to the one I scored against Bolton on Saturday, the only difference being that I could think of the one against Bolton as an example.

"I have to admit that I remembered the goal when I was running into the box and it helped me - even though I did not have to fight for the ball this time."
