Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes that the Gunners’ win over Manchester United shows they are full of potential and have the mental strength to come back from another trophyless season.
“When you listened to everybody before the game, we had no chance to take any points, but we won so let’s keep believing in ourselves,’ the Arsenal manager said.
“Despite the disappointments, the group is healthy, ambitious and there is a lot of quality.”
While Arsenal were the main threat to leaders Manchester United just weeks ago for the title, they now sit at third on the Barclays Premier League table. Arsenal are mathematically still in with a chance for the title trophy, but based on goal difference Chelsea would have to lose two of their next three games and Manchester United all three for the Gunners to have any chance of winning the silverware.
Wenger put the loss of the title down to the Carling Cup final defeat in February, which Birmingham won 2-1 at the last minute.
Injuries also played a part in Arsenal’s downfall, and Aaron Ramsey in particular spent nine months out of the English Premier League with a horror leg break. The starlet said scoring his goal against Manchester United in the 1-0 win was something he wouldn't be forgetting any time soon.
"Scoring the goal was a special moment for me. This was worth the wait and so many people have helped me through the tough time I had," Ramsey said.
"Hopefully this will give them the same satisfaction as it does me. After these remaining games, hopefully I can come back and have a good pre-season, and then go again next year.
"Our target was just to win the remaining games, so we have started on that. Hopefully now we can continue this and let's see where that takes us."
