Nasri: Gunners will bounce back

Published Add your comment

Samir Nasri maintains Arsenal have the right spirit and quality of personnel to force themselves back into the top four of the Barclays Premier League.

While leaders Manchester United, Chelsea and Aston Villa all won their midweek fixtures, both Arsenal and Liverpool could only manage a draw.

Nasri told Arsenal TV Online : "In the title race, some wins are not impressive, but we are winning without leaking goals and if we keep that up, we will be back in the title race before very long."

He added: "The criticism has been very hard, but we know that we have got the quality and the togetherness here, and we'll see at the end of the season whether Arsenal will come through it.

"We made some mistakes and have not picked up as many points as we would have liked.

"There is a gap, we know that, but if we go on a run, we can make up the ground, we are sure of that."

French international Nasri, signed for £12million in the summer from Marseille, has found himself central to the Gunners' game plan following injury to captain Cesc Fabregas.

Normally deployed on the flank, the 21-year-old has been moved inside for a spells in matches, which allow him to show off his full range of passes.

"I have had to play a lot in the centre before at Marseille in the past, but the fact I am right footed playing on the left means I can cut inside and link up with the front men," he said.
