Arsenal have the players and qualities to challenge for the Premier League title and their failure to do so is frustrating, striker Alexis Sanchez has said.
Arsenal’s inconsistent performances in the second half of the season led them to a second-placed finish last campaign and the same problem affected them this season, with 10 wins in their last l8 league fixtures dropping them to fifth position.
Sanchez, who is the club’s leading scorer with 23 goals and 10 assists this season, said that his team could perform better.
Sanchez also said that the players’ mentality is the reason for their recent three-game winning streak in the league.
Arsenal trail fourth-placed Liverpool by a point with one game left in the season and risk missing a Champions League spot for the first time during manager Arsene Wenger’s 20-year reign at the club.
Arsenal can, however, win the FA Cup for the third time in four years when they face Chelsea in the final on May 27 but Sanchez remains uncertain if that would make the season a success.
Arsenal must beat Everton on Sunday and can finish fourth if relegated Middlesbrough draw with or win against Liverpool the same day.
