Arsenal are dear favourites of every football supporter to win the league this year. Constantly facing competition by Leicester City and Manchester City for the top spot, the Gunners look to extend their lead every game. Arsenal player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says Arsenal can win their first Premier League title since 2004 – but warned fans there will be ‘hiccups’ along the way.
‘’We’re in a strong position now, it’s where we would like to be,” Oxlade-Chamberlain told the club’s website.’’
“There have been some hiccups along the way and I’m sure there will be a few more but we need to build on this half of the season and go into the New Year positively and in the right manner.’’
‘’You need to build momentum. It’s all about getting the right results and as many results as possible from here.’’
“From day to day, we need to turn it around if we have a bad result. We need to turn that around and we got the right result.’’
“We know we’re capable of winning games. The boss said to us that the team that lost at Southampton is no different to the one that beat Manchester City at home.”
‘’We’ll hopefully get some injured players back soon and that will boost us again, but the boys have been really good so far,” he added.
“We need to keep that going and [the win over Bournemouth] was a good step and a good way to end the year.”
Arsenal is currently 1st on the table after Leicester City drew the game against Manchester City.
