Van Persie: Arsenal can still win the Premier League

Arsenal star Robin van Persie still believes the Gunners can challenge Manchester United for the Premier League title, despite being seven points adrift.

Talking to the Hackney Gazette, van Persie said: “Definitely we still believe. We still believe we are really good footballers, we have eight games to play and it is up to us.

“On Sunday we have Blackpool away and this is a chance for us to get three points. We cannot give up, we have to go on.”

The Dutch international also bemoaned missed opportunities in the weekend’s draw with Blackburn Rovers: “It is unlike us [not to score goals]. There is no one to blame, everybody had a good spirit and we created chances, but we just didn’t take them. I feel we deserved three points, but we have to move on.”

In all competitions, Arsenal have now gone five games without a victory, including draws against Sunderland, West Brom and Blackburn.
