Mesut Ozil: Arsenal can finish above Chelsea and Man City
Mesut Ozil has insisted Arsenal can win the Premier League title over Chelsea and Manchester City despite being 13 points adrift of the leaders.
The German World Cup winner made his return in the comfortable 3-0 win over Stoke and said he was just glad to be back playing football again after a frustrating three months on the sidelines with a knee injury.
The Gunners have endured an inconsistent season where they have looked shaky at the back.
But Ozil says they were back to their best in the win over Stoke, which they can now build on.
“We have a really strong team. People could see that once again against Stoke,” the midfielder told German publication Sport1.
“So I don’t see why we shouldn’t finish right at the very top of the table. When you play football you should always have belief in yourself.”
