As Arsenal head into the north London derby fighting for the top four this weekend, Mohamed Elneny has bigger sights on his horizon.
Arsenal currently sit in sixth position, a whopping 24 points off leaders Manchester City and five points off fourth placed Chelsea, but Elneny seems to think the league title is not over for the Gunners.
Yes that’s right, the midfielder really thinks that Arsenal have what it takes to catch the runaway leaders with only 12 games to go.
The Egyptian has only made seven league appearances so far this season for Arsenal, so maybe the 25-year-old should be more focused on trying to get into the starting 11, rather than thinking too much about City.
Elneny told BeIN Sports: “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.
“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.”
Does he have a point? Well with a maximum of only 36 points up for grabs, probably not.
But Arsenal head to Wembley this weekend to take on bitter north London rivals, Tottenham, in Saturday’s early game and Arsenal can’t afford to drop any more points.
Arsenal boast a perfect record at Wembley in recent seasons, winning all of their last nine outings which is a run that stretches back to 2014.
In fact you have to go back as far as 2011 to find Arsenal’s last defeat there; the humiliating League Cup final loss to Birmingham.
