Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud believes the Londoners can win the Premier League title next season if they can stay free of long term injuries to their key players, reports Sky Sports.
The French international was one of many players who spent a large portion of the season sidelined with injury, and has been on fire in front of goal ever since he returned to the fray. Arsenal are ending the season strongly, and could be in line to finish runners-up to Chelsea in the Premier League table come May.
Giroud has been in sensational form since his return from injury, but his efforts have come too late to threaten a title chase this season. Nevertheless, he feels that Arsenal can push for the league crown in the next campaign, with their 2015 form having been the best out of all the sides in the Premier League.
The Frenchman said: “Yes, I think we can (win the title). Hopefully we will have less injuries and if we keep this group, with maybe one or two new players coming in, we can have a great season. I know we can still improve. If we keep our best players, this determination and team spirit, I am sure we are going to join the championship race.”
Arsenal have won 11 games from 14 played this year, which has taken them from sixth to level on points with second-placed Manchester City, and they could well finish above the Sky blues if they continue their fine run of form.
