Wojciech Szczesny believes Arsenal could overtake Manchester City and finish the season as Premier League runners-up.
Arsenal travel to face bottom-club Wolves on Wednesday after effectively ending City’s hopes of winning the league by beating them 1-0 at the Emirates on Sunday.
The win also moved the Gunners to within 10 points of Roberto Mancini’s side with six games remaining.
“I believe we will finish third,” said the Arsenal goalkeeper. “Man City have lost their chance of the title – it was a big blow to us last year and they might drop a little bit, so who knows maybe we can catch them as well.
“Our aim is to win every game and if we do that we will be in the Champions League next season.”
Love Szczesny’s optimism 10 points is too big a gap to close down in only six games. But after another poor display by Spurs yesterday, Arsenal have a great opportunity to wrap up third place.
The Gunners are two points ahead of the future England manager’s side and will play two games before Spurs play again. Win them both and Spurs will be facing an 8 point gap with five matches to go, a gap that they will not be able to close.
