Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is adamant his side can still win the English Premier League as it makes a return from the international break.
The Gunners play Watford in TV3’s live English Premier League this weekend and Wenger believes a win in that game plus the remaining seven could help them overturn the 11-point gap between his side and leaders Leicester City.
“If we win all the eight games, we have more than a chance to win the league but our target is to win the games. Let’s start to be pragmatic and win the next one. We are depending on Leicester City and nobody knows how they will go in the last seven games. They have seven games, we have eight. What is important is that we play our eight games with complete commitment and passion and see where we finish.”
Arsenal have exited the champions league and FA Cup in recent weeks and admits it has been tough to take. He wants his players to respond well.
“The last few weeks have been very difficult but I believe you focus on giving your best and performing and I think our last two games – at Barcelona and at Everton – were very positive. That shows the team respond very well, even when we have a difficult period. That’s what it is about. Some teams sink and some others respond.”
