A well-taken brace from Tomas Rosicky was enough to secure all three points for the Gunners as they battled to a 2-1 win over West Brom on Saturday.
The win, coupled with Tottenham Hotspur's 2-2 draw with Everton on Sunday, means Arsenal find themselves a mere two points behind the fourth-placed Lilywhites but with a game in hand over their arch-rivals.
Given that Spurs still have daunting fixtures against Chelsea and Manchester City in their final six games, Arsenal are in prime position to leapfrog Andre Villas-Boas' men into the top four, and many have tipped the Gunners to do just that.
Sagna believes his side have picked up the pace at the right time of the season and has called on his side to pick up maximum points from their remaining games as they seek to secure qualification into next season's Champions League.
"We don't want to look at other teams," Sagna told Arsenal Player.
"We just want to look at our own team and finish in the top four.
"Winning is really massive. We knew we have to take it game by game and take maximum points.
"We're on a good run and we want to keep that going because we still have six weeks to go until the end of the season and we want to qualify for the Champions League."
Meanwhile, Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta has joined manager Arsene Wenger in extolling the virtues of Saturday's match-winner Rosicky.
Wenger had labelled the Czech Republic international's performance against West Brom as "fantastic" and had expressed his hope for the former Borussia Dortmund player to "finish his career" with the club.
Arteta has echoed Wenger's sentiments and highlighted Rosicky's ability to be a game-changer.
"Tomas [Rosicky] has got quality, Arteta declared.
"He's got a change of rhythm in the middle of the park that makes a difference
"The fact that he made a difference here [against West Brom] is massive for us."
Arteta also expressed his delight at being able to pick up the win against West Brom despite coming under the cosh late in the game following Per Mertesacker's dismissal.
"We dominated the game," Arteta added.
"We had the better chances but when Per was sent off and we gave a penalty away, it was game on and we had to hang on.
"Credit to the lads, we defended well and the goalkeeper made some really good saves. We're delighted with the points.
"Now we have to keep going and keep winning. We have three games at home now so let's focus on that."
