Gael Clichy believes Arsenal can still scoop the title if they win all their seven remaining games and dream a little.

The Frenchman saw his side slip to third, six points behind Manchester United after a highly disappointing 2-1 defeat at Chelsea on Sunday.

Of course the Premier League is not over yet; Sir Alex Ferguson's side still have to play both Arsenal and Chelsea. However Arsène Wenger's team are widely considered to be the outsiders of the top three.

Clichy is well aware the odds are stacked against Arsenal now but he is not giving up.

"Seven games mean there is a lot to do for them and for us," said the 22-year-old. "We just have to play the best football we can. If we win all the games anything is possible. But we have to be realistic and not drop any more points.

"We don't have to feel sorry for ourselves. We have to go to Bolton on Saturday, win there and try to make something happen. It is going to be difficult. We have to dream and believe in it.

"When you look at the table you see Man United are six points ahead of course the gap is open a little bit now. It will be difficult for us but we have a great team and great quality.

"There are seven games to go. We have to think positive. Maybe if we can win all those seven games then something can happen.

"For a few games now we have known that every match is a big one. We know we cannot afford to lose anymore points now. But like the boss says, it is a good opportunity to show everybody the strength in the team. So let's go for it. I am sure with a bit of luck and lot of work we can still make it happen. It is going to be difficult but we have to believe in it."
