Our title dream is still alive, says Arsenal striker

Published Add your comment

Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh has urged his teammates to forget their recent run of bad results and concentrate on winning the Barclays Premier League.

The Gunners crashed out of the Carling Cup - losing in the final to Birmingham - the Champions League and the FA Cup in the space of two weeks and have understandably had their confidence dented.

However, Arsenal remain firmly in the hunt for a first league title since 2004 - something Chamakh believes is still within their grasp.

"It's true that we are currently in a difficult period: we're out of the Carling Cup, the Champions League and now the FA Cup," the Moroccan told the official Arsenal website.

"The final thing for us to focus on is the League and, knowing the lads and the qualities we have, I think we can win it. There are ten games left until the end of the season, there is no longer any room for failure, we have run out of excuses as we are out of all three Cups.

"We are frustrated but we can win this title this season. It's the right time. This is the last stretch of a long road to the title and we need to work hard."


The north London club remain only three points behind league leaders Manchester United and retain a game-in-hand, with the two clubs also set to meet on May 1.

However, with a visit to West Brom on the horizon this weekend, Chamakh is not prepared to look any further than Saturday's encounter.

"It's an important game, like any other," the 27-year-old added. "We need to win this away game in order to stay in the race for the title. We've been working really hard this week to get the right result.

"Yes these are difficult times but we need to keep our heads high and get this title. We have what it takes to do it. I want to win something this year and to achieve something great with my team-mates."
