Seaman believes that the Gunners remain in the Premier League title hunt.

Former Gunners keeper David Seaman firmly believes that Arsenal are still very much in the race for the Premier League title, the former Highbury favourite playing down the North London side’s recent poor form.
Arsenal have suffered three straight defeats in all competitions, culminating in a shock mid-week 2-1 defeat at home to Swansea City.
This result saw them slip to some six points adrift of Premier League table-toppers Leicester City, however with both Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur also losing in their mid-week outings, Seaman believes that should the Gunners return to winning ways at White Hart Lane in the North London derby this weekend, they can repair any damage caused by recent poor results.
“All that happened this week was that we lost one extra point to Leicester. We had a bad result; luckily everyone around us got beat so we didn’t lose too much ground,” he said.
“Losing three on the trot is not the best, but what better way to get your confidence up than by going to White Hart Lane and beating Tottenham? Forget what’s gone on, focus on Saturday and a chance of gaining points on the teams above you.
“Their confidence is low, it will be low, but what a great opportunity on Saturday against Spurs.”
Arsenal have now lost three games on the bounce, the first time this has happened to the Gunners in over four years.
