Fabregas: Title Still In Sight

Posted on: November 28, 2008

LONDON: Cesc Fabregas, Arsenal’s newly-appointed captain, has insisted the Gunners still haven’t given up hope of winning the English Premier League title this season.

Arsenal travel to leaders and London rivals Chelsea on Sunday knowing they are 10 points off top spot following five league defeats already this season.

But they will be buoyed by a 1-0 Champions League win over Dinamo Kiev at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday — Fabregas’ first match as Arsenal captain.

Victory over the Ukrainians, secured by Nicklas Bendtner’s late goal, saw Arsenal into the last 16 of European football’s leading club competition with a match to spare.

It was a welcome result for Arsenal following the negative headlines generated by William Gallas’ public criticisms of his teammates, remarks which saw the France defender stripped of the club captaincy by compatriot and Gunners manager Arsene Wenger.
Arsenal’s title aspirations may have been written off by many pundits but not by 21-year-old Spain midfielder Fabregas.

“The aim is to lift a trophy. We are in the last 16 of the Champions League and are in contention in every competition. — AFP
