The result took the Gunners to within four points of Chelsea and Manchester United with two games remaining.

Fabregas told Setanta Sports: "Nothing is impossible. We have to win the last two games and then we'll see. We are not the favourites, but you never know."

The midfielder also paid tribute to hat-trick hero Emmanuel Adebayor, adding: "He makes a difference every time he plays, he's a striker who can do everything. We should feel fortunate to have him."

Adebayor was keen to praise his team-mates for their service.

"It was an important game for us and we want to finish as strongly as possible," he said. "Every time I have a good ball to finish. I'm very happy but the most important thing is for the team to win."
