Arsenal key man believes title is still winnable & Wenger is the man for the job

Laurent Koscielny still believes there’s a slight chance Arsenal can win the Premier League this season, and claims Arsene Wenger is still the right man to lead the team to victory, according to the Express.

Arsenal look to have blown their best chance of winning the Premier League in years, with Leicester City and Tottenham in a far better position to lift the trophy. Over the last few years Arsenal have had the excuse that they can’t compete financially with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea, but if the Foxes are victorious then that goes straight out the window.

Koscielny is a key part of the Arsenal set-up, and part of this season’s failings have been due to injuries suffered by the Frenchman and his teammates. He claims they are still doing their best to top the table though, and will continue to fight until the end.

“I can understand the frustration of supporters — the club hasn’t won the title for a long time,” he said.

“But we’re doing our best every season to lift this trophy. There are ups and downs in the season with injuries and lack of form

“But the coach is still the right man to help us win the league, even if we only have a very small chance.

“We’ve got eight finals left — we have no room for error any more.

“We’ve used up all of our Joker cards and we will have to get stuck in, not just think playing good football will be enough to win games.”

It seems incredibly unlikely that Arsenal will win the league this season, as Leicester have built up an 11 point lead over them at the top of the table. If they are even going to come close though, Koscielny will be influential and they need to keep him fit.
