Mesut Ozil Sets Premier League Record

Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil is confident the gunners can still claim the title, despite being 11 points behind Leicester City, who sit at the top of the table.

The gunners dropped to third on the log, after claiming only three wins from their last 10 matches – they have a game in hand on Leicester.

And Ozil believes they can still win the title, but has warned against further slip ups, if they’re to pull off the ultimate comeback.

“I do not think it impossible,” he told the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag.

“Although there are only a few games left, Leicester have a run against some of the big teams to come. We ourselves must in any case not allow any more slip-ups. The hope of the title is still there – we have the players for the title.”

Ozil, who has 19 assists this season and is closing in on Thierry Henry’s division record, is full of praise for Leicester’s unlikely title tilt, though is hoping they slip up in the run-in.

“They deserve to be up there; Leicester fight for every point,” he continued. “We see in every game that players of Leicester want to achieve something.

“We ourselves have not been focused in every game and that is not possible in the Premier League since there is no opponent you can beat easily.

“Leicester have been great but there are still a few games. I think we still have a chance to catch them up. We must, of course, hope for mistakes.”
