Egypt and Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny reckons they still have an opportunity to fight for the English Premier League title.
Elneny expressed his confidence in the Gunners’ ability to compete for the EPL title despite the huge gap between them and leaders Manchester City.
Arsene Wenger’s men currently occupy the sixth place on the league table, 24 points away from Pep Guardiola’s men.
However, the candidate for Player of the Month Award at Arsenal believes the former FA Cup champions have a chance to compete.
“There’s nothing impossible in the English Premier League, we still have our chance to compete for the title, we have to fight till the end, many surprises can occur at any point,” Elneny told BeIN Sports.
“If we fail to compete for the title this season, we have to prepare for the next season, but currently we are only thinking about finishing as high as possible in the league.”
Elneny has also spoken about his place in Arsenal’s side, claiming he’s fighting whenever he has the chance to win Wenger’s confidence.
“Arsene Wenger is a great manager and has made a great name in football, everyone at Arsenal know his importance to the club,” adds the Pharaohs international.
“Sometimes Wenger starts me in midfield and other times I play as a defender, I’m proud I can adapt quickly and carry out my manager’s instructions.”
