Arsenal legend Thierry Henry stated that he would tell the players in the squad that they have to aim to win the Premier League title this season after the victory against West Ham.
We moved to within six points of Chelsea before their game against Southampton, and Jose Mourinho’s men still have to come to the Emirates in April.
Henry concedes that the title is still very much in their hands, but Arsenal must be ready to take full advantage of any potential slip-ups given that we are the form team in the Premier League.

“If I was still playing for Arsenal, I’d be in the dressing room thinking; look guys we can still win the league title,” Henry said (via the Evening Standard).
Over the past few years, teams have been able to put together a late run, similar to Liverpool’s last season, and make a late charge for the Premier League title.
We have won five league games in a row for the first time this season and with Newcastle away and Liverpool at home to come, Wenger will be hoping that the team can keep plugging away.

Any potential title challenge will depend on how the boss can rotate the squad given the options available to him and as Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta and Gabrial set to return, those options will multiply.
