Arsenal are still in the title race says Mesut Ozil [divider]
Arsenal are still in the Premier League title race according to Mesut Özil.
The Gunners are currently seven points behind league leaders Chelsea but the Blues have a game in hand.
“In the Premier League everything is possible and we have to look forward now. We have important games in front of us that we want to be successful in,” Özil told the official Arsenal website.
Arsenal are just one point behind second placed Manchester City and could overtake the Citizens with a win against Newcastle United if City draw or lose against West Brom.
The Gunners have not won the Premier League title in 10 years.
Arsene Wenger was manager when Arsenal last won the league and has guided the North London based clubs to two further championships titles.
Özil won the La Liga title with Real Madrid before his move to England and also won the World Cup with Germany in the summer.
Özil has scored three times and created four goals since returning to the first team in January.
