Gabriel says that Arsenal are confident they can still compete for the Premier League title after Saturday’s 4-0 win against Watford.
Alexis, Alex Iwobi, Hector Bellerin and Theo Walcott scored as the Gunners returned to their free-flowing best at Emirates Stadium, securing back-to-back league wins for the first time since February.
Gabriel says that Arsenal are ready to make a late title surge as they maintain the pressure on Leicester City and Tottenham.
"We’re also hoping for some fault on [Leicester and Tottenham’s] part and if we carry on the way that we have been lately, that we can definitely win the league"
“It’s not every game that we’ll have an excellent performance like today,” the Brazil defender told Arsenal Player. “We were just much more focused against Watford and that’s why things went much better and we recorded a positive result.
“The team are now very excited with the last two wins in the league, which were two difficult games, but we’re all thinking positively that we can win.
“We’re also hoping for some fault on [Leicester and Tottenham’s] part and if we carry on the way that we have been lately, that we can definitely win the league.
“We’ve regained our confidence once again. Not so long ago we lacked a little in confidence and we weren’t going into the match fully focused, so with a victory, we come back with a better self-esteem. Now, with the second win, it will make us grow more and I’m sure next time we will improve even more.”
