Arsenal can still make it to top four- Alex Iwobi boasts

Nigeria and Arsenal of England star, Alex Iwobi has made a rather ambitious claim that his club will make it into the top four this season after the Londoners struggled to get a draw with Man City on Sunday.
Arsenal are currently sixth in the table, seven points off fourth-placed City, although Arsene Wenger's men have a game in hand.
Arsene Wenger’s side came back twice at the Emirates to get the draw, but Iwobi believes his team could have got than a point from the game.
“We’ll take the result but we could have nicked it at the end,” the Nigeria forward, who came on as a substitute on Sunday, told Arsenal's official website. 
“I had a good chance to score but unfortunately we’ll have to settle for a point.
“I thought I could have added a bit of energy to our attacking force, and that’s what I tried to do. It was an intense game with a lot of aggressive tackles, a lot of running and sprints, so I tried to add energy when I came on.
“Of course we still have that belief. We believe that we can win every game and that’s the goal, so we’ll take it step by step to see where we end up at the end of the season.
“It was a very tough match and we were behind twice, so I guess we have to be satisfied with that.
“We still believe that we can be in the top four, and that we can be in the title race as much as we can, but we’ll take it step by step and see where we end up at the end of the season.”
“We just came back from the international break and our confidence is slowly coming back. We were able to get a good result against one of the best teams in the Premier League, so the confidence will slowly come back and we have to continue that on Wednesday (against West Ham United).
“We’ll let the manager decide what the plan will be for Wednesday, but I’m sure we’ll be able to get the right tactics, the right team and hopefully the right result.”
