Arsenal long serving midfielder Tomas Rosicky believes that his have the team spirit required to win the Premier League this season as they gear up for Sunday’s clash against AFC at the Vitality Stadium.
With 14 games remaining, Arsenal sit in fourth place, just five points adrift of league leaders Leicester City ahead of Sunday’s fixture at Bournemouth.
But Rosicky who is sidelined for the encounter with a thigh injury is confident that Arsenal have enough quality to compete for more silverware this season.
“Although we have had a bad spell because we have not won for four games, the performances haven’t been bad at all. In the game against Southampton we had plenty of chances and the performance was alright, but we have to show more killer instinct.
“We cannot expect that we will have so many chances in every game. What’s important though is that we don’t panic. There are plenty of games in front of us. All the big teams are playing against each other so it will be very interesting and I believe we have what it takes to win the league this year.
“It’s one of the best [Arsenal sides I have played in] because we have some world-class players here. I feel we have what it takes to win the league but we are not allowed to have any more slip ups.
“The spirit in our dressing room was always right. Whichever new player came into the dressing room always felt welcomed because the spirit was always good.
“It’s very important that, even when you have a rough spell which you will definitely have in a season, you stay positive, don’t panic, analyse everything in the right way and believe you have what it takes to win the league. I do.” Rosicky told Arsenal Player.
Four Premier League games without a win have seen Arsenal move from two points clear at the top of the division to five points behind leaders Leicester City. And Wenger’s team have failed to score in the last three of those matches.
