Arsenal stars Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey have spoken about the possibility of the club catching up with Chelsea and firing a late title challenge, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The Gunners are currently seven points behind the Blues, though Jose Mourinho’s side also have a game in hand, meaning it’s potentially a ten-point gap they will need to bridge.
“We want to finish really strongly, and if we can win our games, then we will see if City or Chelsea miss one of their steps. You never know, you have to believe in football,” Giroud said after his brace against Newcastle United this weekend.
“We’ll try to win every game we have left and see where that takes us,” Ramsey added.
“Strange things happen in the Premier League, the kind of upset where City went to Burnley and lost. We’ve got to be switched on and make sure that kind of result doesn’t happen to us – but at the same time believe the teams around us will be on the end of upsets.”
Surely Arsenal have left it too late? Perhaps with nothing to lose Arsene Wenger’s side can play with a bit more freedom and get some good results, but they’re depending far too much on a large number of slip-ups from Chelsea, who may have had a bit of a wobble recently, but who surely won’t implode and lose three games.
