Arsenal can still win the Premier League says Mesut Ozil

Arsenal team news Alexis Sanchez Mesut Ozil

Arsenal are currently 11 points behind leaders Leicester City but do have a glimmer of hope in the Premier League title race as they have a game in hand.

Gunners star Mesut Ozil has not given up hope of lifting the league title at the end of the season and believes Leicester City could still slip up.

“I do not think it impossible,” Ozil told the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag when asked about hunting down Leicester and winning the league.

“Although there are only a few games left, Leicester have a run against some of the big teams to come. We ourselves must in any case not allow any more slip-ups. The hope of the title is still there – we have the players for the title.”

Even if the Foxes slip up Arsenal will also require north London rivals Tottenham to also drop points. Spurs are currently five points behind Leicester and six ahead of the Gunners.

The Premier League is currently the only trophy still up for grabs for Arsenal after bowing out of the FA Cup and Champions League.

Ozil is currently on international duty with the Germany national team and started against England over the weekend providing an assist in the 3-2 defeat at the Berlin, Olympic stadium.

Arsenal take on Watford next in the Premier League on Saturday 2 April at the Emirates – Ozil will be expected to start.
