Arsenal ‘keeper Wojciech Szczesny eyes victory over Tottenham to kick-start revival

Goalkeeper still looking to pull back Manchester United despite the sides inability to win in their last three home games and the task of hauling back a six-point gap
Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has called on the Gunners to beat rivals Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Wednesday evening to revive their fading title hopes.

Arsene Wenger's side saw a valuable two points slip from their grasp on Sunday, as they conceded in the 102nd minute against Liverpool to throw away a one-goal lead, leaving them trailing league leaders Manchester United by six points with just six games remaining.

However, young Polish goalkeeper Szczesny is refusing to give up on his Premier League title dream.

"Of course we still believe we can win the title," he told reporters.

"We still have to play United and they also have to play Chelsea. They will drop points and we believe we're good enough to win every game remaining.

"Tottenham is a very good match for us to come back from a big disappointment and we owe it to the fans because they're very disappointed about what happened against Liverpool. We owe them a result at White Hart Lane.

"The draw was a huge disappointment because with a minute to go we scored what we thought was a winning goal. We're all gutted.

"It was a cheap penalty to give away whether it was one or not. We needed to win really badly to keep the pressure on United."

As the Gunners look to pile pressure on United, sneaking up behind them in third place are Carlo Ancelotti's Chelsea, following their 3-1 win at West Brom this weekend. However, the 21-year-old goalkeeper says that he and the side are only thinking about what's ahead of them.

He added: "We're only thinking about winning the title, not who is behind us.

"We go into everything to finish first. We are Arsenal, we don't want to finish second and we definitely don't want to finish third.

"I still feel a little uncomfortable when I'm in goal. I wear a special protection but it didn't cause me any trouble against Liverpool."
