‘Best team in world’ Arsenal ‘going for all four titles this season’: Djourou

Friday, February 18, 2011

LONDON - Arsenal defender Johan Djourou feels that his team stands on the verge of “greatness” after their victory over Barcelona in Wednesday’s Champions League clash.

David Villa put Barcelona ahead in the 26th minute, but Robin van Persie levelled the scores in the 78th and Andrey Arshavin scored Arsenal’s winner in the 83rd.

It was Arsenal’s first victory against Barcelona in six attempts, and only the third defeat their opponents have suffered in 40 games this season.

“To come back from behind and win against Barcelona was incredible. It showed our team has a lot of potential to achieve greatness at the end of the season,” the Daily Express quoted Djourou, as saying.

“We can win the lot, all four of the trophies we are going for. We are still in every competition and the main thing is for us to take things game by game. A lot of things are in front of us and we need to be focused.”

“If we can knock Barcelona out of the Champions League it would show the world that Arsenal is a big club. Everyone is expecting Barcelona to be the best team in the world, but Arsenal can be better than them,” he added. (ANI)
