8th Aug 2010 Arsenal.com: Sagna - Consistency the key to title push
Bacary Sagna insists Arsenal can win the title this season - but only if they maintain their consistency throughout the campaign.
The French right back is still waiting for his first trophy since moving to Emirates Stadium in the summer of 2007 but he has come close a couple of times, playing his part in title pushes in 2008 and last season.
On both occasions Arsenal's challenge petered out in April but Sagna thinks Arsène Wenger's squad can get it right this term.
“Yes we can win it. I’m 100 per cent confident," declared the Frenchman.
"It will be down to us now. We have a good team and some new players. We have an amazing team and play good football. We just need to be more consistent and to be a bit more focused on the pitch.”
The usual suspects of Chelsea and Manchester United are expected to be there or thereabouts in the title race while Liverpool will be looking to bounce back from a poor 2009/10 campaign. There's a big buzz around Manchester City too after a summer of heavy investment but Sagna is not concerned by their spending power.
"They have bought a lot of good players and they will be hard to beat but we are still Arsenal, we play good football and just want to continue to play as we are now," he said.
