Joel Campbell seems fairly relaxed over our bid for the Premier League title this season, insisting that as a big team, we’re used to the pressure.
The forward, who previously spent loan spells at Olympiacos and Villarreal, insists that as the Arsenal, we should be able to work around any pressure we may feel when it comes to winning the title.
“We have many chances with this team but it is a very tight fight at the top of the table,” the 23-year-old said to Arsenal Player.
“We are just focused on our work, go from match to match and we hope to become champions.
“I don’t know [how important my Olympiacos experience can be]. Greece is a different competition from the Premier League
“Olympiacos were the team to beat in Greece, so in every match we had to go out to win it. Arsenal is a candidate for the title here and we have to win every game too, that pressure is always there.
“But we are Arsenal, we are a big team and we are used to it.”
It’s one thing saying we’re able to deal with the pressure, it’s another thing doing it. Over the years Arsenal have become renowned for choking at the final hurdle and although we’re showing signs that we’re over it, mistakes are still being made.
At the moment, it appears as if we’re relying on our title rivals to make mistakes, rather than performing as we should, which needs to change. Hopefully our players are able to capitalise if the likes of Leicester and Spurs do slip up but we need to be concentrating on our own performances first and foremost.
