Arsenal star Alex Iwobi believes the club can still finish in the Premier League top four despite Sunday’s 2-2 home draw with Manchester City, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Arsenal are currently sixth in the table, seven points off fourth-placed City, although the Gunners have a game in hand.
Arsene Wenger’s side equalised twice to get the draw, but Iwobi believes his team could have got more out of the game.
“We’ll take the result but we could have nicked it at the end,” the Nigeria forward, who came on as a substitute on Sunday, told the Arsenal website. “I had a good chance to score but unfortunately we’ll have to settle for a point.
“I thought I could have added a bit of energy to our attacking force, and that’s what I tried to do. It was an intense game with a lot of aggressive tackles, a lot of running and sprints, so I tried to add energy when I came on.
“Of course we still have that belief. We believe that we can win every game and that’s the goal, so we’ll take it step by step to see where we end up at the end of the season.
“It was a very tough match and we were behind twice, so I guess we have to be satisfied with that.
“We still believe that we can be in the top four, and that we can be in the title race as much as we can, but we’ll take it step by step and see where we end up at the end of the season.”
“We just came back from the international break and our confidence is slowly coming back. We were able to get a good result against one of the best teams in the Premier League, so the confidence will slowly come back and we have to continue that on Wednesday (against West Ham United).
“We’ll let the manager decide what the plan will be for Wednesday, but I’m sure we’ll be able to get the right tactics, the right team and hopefully the right result.”
