Clichy insists Arsenal title push is on

Gael Clichy insists Arsenal can still win the Premiership title this season.

The full-back, 24, insists Arsenal can prove the critics wrong and win the race to the Premier League summit.

The Gunners travel to Stoke today, just six points behind leaders Chelsea.

Clichy said: "I was on the sidelines when we were 11 points off the top. It was difficult because you can see what is not going right from the stands.

"You can't do anything and you see your friends on the pitch struggling. When you find yourself 11 points behind, you ask yourself 'Are we capable of doing it?'

"But we kept confidence high and a few weeks later were back in the title race. That shows the character here. Now we want to prove Arsenal can win something this season.

"People said we weren't good enough when we played Manchester United and then lost against Chelsea. But it's realistic to think about the title. Every team is dropping points.

"You can't give up as one week there can be a U-turn and you can be top. It's going to be difficult but we have the players and the quality to do it."
