Olivier Giroud believes Arsenal can still challenge for the Premier League title by continuing their seemingly unstoppable winning run, reports the Daily Mail.
Arsenal recorded their eighth consecutive Premier League win after a narrow 1-0 victory against Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday.
The win this past weekend places this current run of form as the best since the Invincible title win in 2004.
The Gunners play Chelsea at home in their next league game at the Emirates and a win there would put pressure on the Blues who currently lead the league by seven points with a game in hand.
Giroud, speaking after the game, implied that Arsenal are more than just a nice-to-look-at passing side: “You can’t play your best football every game. We tried to be focused on not conceding and it’s one more clean sheet.
“As long as we were winning the game, I don’t think we were in too much danger. We are really pleased.”
Giroud later spoke about Arsenal’s winning run and how it matches up to the one of the Invincible era: “We know about the record of the Invincibles. It’s really good for us to be near that and I’m really proud to take part.
“We want to carry on and keep this good run going until the end”.
IN CHELSEA'S HANDS
Despite the growing confidence in the Arsenal dressing room, manager Arsene Wenger chose to speak little on his teams chances of overtaking Mourinho’s Chelsea: “It’s still in Chelsea’s hands, even if we put in a perfect run- but we will give it absolutely everything to finish in a strong way”.
Arsenal play Chelsea in two weeks but before that they have an FA Cup semi-final fixture against Reading at Wembley.
