Mustafi will not give up on league title

Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi believes his team can still win the English Premier League title this season, despite Chelsea's big lead at the top of the table.

The Gunners have suffered back-to-back defeats in the league, against Watford at home and Chelsea away, to leave them fourth on the table, a massive 12 points behind the Blues with 14 games remaining.

The German international admits that recent results have been disappointing but the London club will not give up on league glory.

Mustafi told Sky Sports: "I think it's going to be more difficult than it was before but I'm a believer. I don't give up.

"As long as it's possible we're going to fight for it, and in the end we will see and if we're lucky enough and good enough to go for it or not.

"The first game we lost at home [to Watford] was really disappointing. We woke up a bit late, conceded two quick goals and it was difficult to come back.

"We were disappointed as well with losing at Chelsea, which was a completely different game. We knew it would be difficult at Stamford Bridge, but we knew as well it's possible to win. I think in the end we didn't do enough."
