Bernd Leno is confident that Arsenal can turn things around to gain a Champions League spot.

Arsenal’s woes have forced them to drop to the bottom half of the Premier League table. With 23 points from 18 games, the Gunners sit on the 11th place in the Premier League.

With having finished half of the season, Arsenal are closer to the relegation zone than they are to the Champions League spot.

Despite the team’s miserable statistics, Bernd Leno is choosing to remain optimistic. The Arsenal goalkeeper believes his side are still capable of turning things around.

“Of course, because I think there are still many games,” Leno said as per Goal.

“We play against all the top six. We have a lot of opportunities to win games against them. We still believe. It is in our hands.

“We have to show mentality, we have to play good football and I think then we will have opportunities,” Bernd Leno demanded.

“When we just speak about tactics or quality or what was in the past, it doesn’t matter. I think the only way is that we work hard, that we get back our strong mentality and then I think I am confident we can reach our target.”
