Gabriel Jesus says Arsenal stars still believe they can win the title

Gabriel Jesus says Arsenal stars still believe they can win the title

Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus says the Gunners’ locker room is still buzzing with confidence in their ability to wrap up the Premier League title despite their recent stumbles.

The Gunners fought back against relegation-battling Southampton, scoring two late goals to rescue a dramatic 3-3 draw at the Emirates Stadium.

The result in North London means Arsenal have now dropped points in three consecutive games, having previously squandered two-goal leads against Liverpool and West Ham United.

However, Jesus gave an insight into what was said in the Gunners dressing room after the six-goal thriller against Southampton, insisting his side remained positive despite their situation.

“We said – we need to keep going, to keep believing,” Jesus said (via the Daily Mail). “We are not here to always give excuses, but it’s a tough league – there are some good games and tough games. 

“This is the most important game of the season for us [on Wednesday]. We have to understand that every point can decide the league. But, like we all say, now it’s time to stick together, and then we go again.

“We are here playing for a massive club, and all the supporters at the club. We have to manage ourselves to come back and be focused again and be strong because anything can happen from now until the end of the season.”

Arsenal travel to the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday to face title rivals Manchester City in a mouth-watering top-of-the-table clash that will likely decide which way the Premier League trophy swings this season.

Five points separate both sides at the Premier League summit, with the Gunners playing two more games than Pep Guardiola’s side, who booked a place in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

Man City have been tipped to pip Arsenal to the title despite competing in the Champions League and FA Cup, looking to secure a potential treble.

However, the Gunners will hope to defy the odds and prove their credentials, starting with a win over the reigning champions in the midweek encounter.
