Arsenal still have an outside chance of winning the Premier League title, according to David Luiz, who says "anything can happen" in the second half of the season.

Mikel Arteta had beenbacked to guide the Gunners back into the Champions League after delivering two trophies, but has instead seen his team struggle for consistency amid an intense fixture schedule.

The north London outfit have fallen to 10th in the top-flight standings after 22 games, 16 points behind leaders Manchester City and nine behind fourth-placed Liverpool.

Arsenal suffered their ninth defeat of the season away at Wolves on Tuesday, and have also suffered an early exit in the FA Cup, with the Europa League now their most realistic hope of silverware come May.

Luiz acknowledges as much, but herefusesto rule the Gunners out of the title picture completely due to the fact there are still plenty of points up for grabs over the next few months.

“Now it’s about fighting for the two titles that are still on," the defender told ESPN Brasil.

“Of course, the Premier League has this very distant gap. It’s impossible? No. But knowing our reality.

"Knowing that we are in a much more difficult reality than the teams that are up there. But also knowing that we play in the most disputed, most difficult league in the world, where 10 points suddenly in a month become one, two or zero. Anything can happen.”

Luiz added:“I think even more after these many changes that the pandemic caused on a physical level, level of change, adaptation and other things.

"All the clubs are a little messed up and the results can fluctuate in several ways that still give us the awareness that we can also fight for the Premier League.

"And the Europa League, which is the title that we have to aim for this year, which is the title that is achievable for us.”
