Mesut Ozil talks up Arsenal’s Premier League title hopes
Mesut Ozil says Arsenal are capable of challenging for the Premier League title this season
Mesut Ozil is confident that Arsenal have what it takes to win the Premier League title this season.
The Gunners underlined their credentials as genuine challengers for the top-flight crown with an impressive 3-0 win over Manchester United at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
That victory lifted Arsenal up to second place in the Premier League table and just two points behind leaders Manchester City heading into the international break.
And Ozil feels confident that Arsene Wenger’s men will be able to mount a serious assault on the title as they look to win the competition for the first time since 2004.
“We have a great team with a lot of world-class players,” Ozil told Bild.
“Our goal is to win the Premier League title. I think we can achieve it this season if we do not get any major injuries.
“But the season is still long.”
Ozil has been in good form for the Gunners this term and scored one goal and notched up an assist as Arsenal beat Manchester United 3-0 on Sunday.
He joined Arsenal in a club-record transfer deal from Real Madrid back in the summer of 2013. He has helped the north London side win two FA Cups over the last two seasons.
