Published Add your comment

Theo Walcott believes Arsenal have a chance of winning the Premier League in 2013/14, by picking up where they left off last season. 

The England international also believes that his side should take advantage of the recent change of managers of the major title contenders Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City.

The player is confident that the team can win their first trophy this year after failing to do so in the last eight years. The player also wants to push for more goals to improve on last seasons 21 goals by setting himself a target of 25.

Arsenal won nine of their 11 remaining games and Walcott wants that to carry on to the start of this season which he believes his team is capable of doing that to ensure they left the title after all these years. 

And maybe with a few big money moves Arsenal could be capable of winning the league this year, with reports of Arsenal's interest in players like Luis Suarez and Higuain it could put them in a good position for this years campaign.

"The teams that finished above us have changed their managers," he told the club's official website. "We've still got ours.

"It's always going to be tough. Every game in the Premier League is very tough and very interesting. It always comes down to the last few games. So we need to believe in ourselves.

"The way we ended the season last year, 11 games undefeated - we need to do it from the start, which I believe we can.

"The manager shows so much belief in us in every single game so we need to step up and I think we've got a very good chance of challenging this season.

"I got 21 goals last season and I want to try and push on from there. I want to try and get to 25. That's my benchmark but I believe in myself and that's the main thing.

"Time will tell if players come in or not but we just work with the squad we've got at the moment. Come the start of the season, there could be changes. We know it's a very long campaign but we're all very excited about our prospects."
