Cesc: We Can Pass Chelsea

Cesc: We Can Pass Chelsea

Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas believes the Gunners can climb the table and pip Chelsea to second place in this season's Premiership.

After a series of questionable results at home this season, Arsenal find themselves someway off the pace of top club Manchester United.

But Fabregas believes it's still not too late to clinch an all important second spot and all important automatic qualification to the Champions League.

Arsenal currently lie 11 points behind Chelsea with a game in hand. However Chelsea still must play Manchester Untied and the face a trip to the Grove. Coupled with the added pressure of Champions League and FA Cup football to contend with and Fabregas thinks we can catch them.

"It is difficult for us to take [the exit from 3 competitions], but we are professional and we are Arsenal so we have to try to come back as strong as possible.' said Cesc

"Let`s see if we can get second place. I still feel we have a chance to do that if we win every single game. We will see what happens.'

"We just have to come back now, play as a team and try to get that second place. Chelsea still have to play Manchester United as well so I think it is possible."

obviously cesc is taking the psv fans at their word when they sang 'always look on the bright side of life' last week. Reall ycan't see chelski dropping a large enough amount of points - they are somewhat of a machine. But i am pleased at his desire and outlook, that's what we want from our players. »»Arsene Knows««

its great to here cesc talking like this the team is aiming high which is good for morale. this is not as impossible as we make it sound. think about it if we win all 11 remaining games and chelsi lose to manu, us and 1 other team...(hey if we cant dream whats the point) then we will end up second. the reason it is unlikely is coz we are missing soo many players and even if we weren't we just havent been consistent enough so im not sure where a run like that would come from, but it would be welcome. We finished strong last season why not this season. Then again chelsi seem unsettled on the inside with rumours of contract fallouts with JT and maureen talking about Real Madrid anything is possible. so honestly its more in the top 2s hands than ours. we just have to get the results and hope for a miracle. and if we aim for 2 we'll surely secure 3

There's so much good things to say about Cesc. However, there's one thing I'd want to see from him some GOALS. Goals will bring us the Team's Targets and ambitions. He has got everything that Veira has except the GOALS. Keep shooting Fab.

Well we still have to play Chelsea and Liverpool, plus i think we wont do well in the next couple of games due to the CL exit....so 3rd place would be a good target.
