Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere believes the Gunners can still win the title if their rivals drop points along the way.
Speaking after last Sunday’s impressive win over leaders Manchester United, the Englishman confessed the players are disappointed for dropping so many points lately but added that they have to keep the belief and fight until the very end.
Asked about Aaron Ramsey’s goal, the youngster declared he is delighted for his friend as he went through “hell” after suffering a horrible injury at the Britannia Stadium more than a year ago.
Wilshere concluded by saying that the future is bright for the Gunners as the win over the Red Devils demonstrated as this is a young team who can play against anyone with more youngsters ready to step it up like defender Kieran Gibbs.
After the 1-0 win, the 19-year old said:
This season’s not over yet, there’s three games left, we’ve beaten Manchester United and hopefully they can drop a few more points and we’ll see where we are at the end of the year.
Obviously we’ve dropped points in the last week and it’s been frustrating but we have to believe. I don’t know how many points are in it but I know Chelsea are three points behind so it’s not over for anyone yet, we have to keep fighting until the end.
[Aaron Ramsey] is my friend and I’m delighted for him, we’ve seen him go through hell [but] he’s come back he’s fought his way back into the starting line-up and he was brilliant today. I look forward to playing with him more in the future.
[He] is a good player and good players think alike, we linked up well today. If Cesc’s playing it’s a different game he’s one of our best players and we miss him obviously but we knew we had to step up today and me and Aaron did.
We played a young team today and we beat [United] so the future looks bright for us, we showed we can play against anyone. I’m looking forward to playing in midfield with Aaron [Ramsey] and with Theo [Walcott] on the wing. There’s still Kieran Gibbs [to come in as well].
