Arsenal legend: Why the Gunners can still win the title
Robert Pires still believes that Arsenal can beat the odds and win the title this season
Robert Pires is convinced that Arsenal are still in with a chance of winning the Premier League title this season.
The Gunners find themselves fifth in the Premier League table and nine points behind leaders Chelsea after a mixed start to the campaign.
I believe in the players and of course I believe in Wenger
However, former midfielder Pires believes that the forthcoming Christmas period could prove vital for Arsene Wenger’s men.
“I hope we can still win the title,” Pires told Sky Sports. “Of course it is going to be very difficult, but the season is very long and the Christmas period coming up will be a very important one for Arsenal.
“The situation is not too different from when I was an Arsenal player. It was very tough, very difficult against teams like Man United, Man City, Chelsea and Liverpool. The good news is that Theo Walcott is coming back but the bad news is that Mesut Ozil is out.
“But I still believe in Arsenal, I believe in the players and of course I believe in Wenger.”
