Fabregas: Now Is The Time

Super Cesc Fabregas has issued a war cry in an attempt to rally the Arsenal troops for both today's game and the coming season.

The young Spaniard believe's that Arsenal are still in the title race despite already being 13 points adrift of Manchester United. Cesc views today's game as the moment for the team to make their statement of intent to United, Chelsea and Liverpool.

When speaking to the News of the World the midfield maestro had this to say: 'The key moment has arrived

'Arsenal are in crisis because we have suffered so much bad luck in our last two home matches when we deserved to win them both.'

Cesc believes that we have to beat Liverpool today, then go on to turn the Emirates into the fortress that Highbury once was.

'Now, we really need a victory and three points over Liverpool.

'Then the Emirates Stadium must become a fortress because some bad results there had a negative effect on our bid for the title.

'Our objective has to be to win all our home matches from now until the end of the season.

'The title race is still very open. Don't discard us. If Arsenal can move up to third place, I am convinced that our rivals will come under pressure.'

Cesc is right, and if we win today we go third and we can definately make a strong push for the title this year.

I think the title is already out of sight, you can expect either man utd or chelsea to slip up and drop enough points for arsenal to catch them but not both teams.

The maestro prophet lived up to his beliefs and convictions then helped greatly to deliver the 3 points today. That's the winning attitude. Go the Gunners!!!

your young guns are still in with a chance following yesterdays graet win over liverpool...the premiership needs some competition at the top so keep fighting.....

Dazza, if we win our game in hand, we will be 4 points behind Chelsea, and 7 nehind Man U. The last time I checked, to drop 7 points means you lose 2 games and draw 1. That doesn't look like a lot to me, especially considering we have two games against Chelsea, and one against Man u, and they both play each other twice. The key is for us to become consistent from now on. We do that, and we're firm contenders.
