Thinking big: Arsenal's Emmanuel Adebayor believes his side can storm up the table and win the Premier League 'The most important thing is that we keep on going and keep on believing in ourselves and thinking we can do something. That is the only way we can improve our football,' Adebayor told Setanta Sports. 'Last season we were 10 points ahead of Manchester United and at the end of the day they won the title, so we will keep going until the end of the season and see what we can do.   More.

Heading home: Togolese striker was in scoring form for Arsenal on the weekend And Adebayor believes the fact that everyone has written off Arsenal's chances will prove beneficial as the title race enters the final months of the season. 'We are in a better position because everyone has forgotten about Arsenal. They are talking about Liverpool, United and Chelsea. Arsenal are still alive and at the end of the season we will see what we can achieve.' But the African Footballer of the Year nominee warned team mates at The Emirates they must show no fear as they chase United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Aston Villa. Making a point: Adebayour celebrates his goal against Hull with team mates Bacary Sagna (left) and Kolo Toure (right) 'Sometimes now, when we are 1-0 up we become frustrated and start panicking. Last season, when we were 1-0 up, we knew we were going to win the game easily, but this season, when we are winning we are more afraid than they are. 'At the moment we are playing with the handbrake on and we need to tell ourselves to be free and keep going and believe in ourselves.' Adebayor also dismissed suggestions that Arsenal's perceived lack of experience has damaged their title hopes - and revealed that even senior members of the squad have suffered a loss of confidence at times this season. Berbatov brigade: Manchester United are looking good for the title after a string of wins in the Premier League He said: 'It is easy to say that you need more senior players to help you cope with the pressure, because they have been there and done it - but that doesn't mean they will be able to help you when the team is doubting itself. 'We are all human beings. Arsene Wenger sometimes has doubts. We have some senior players like Kolo Toure and William Gallas, but most of the time they are in doubt as well. So they are not going to help the younger players. 'The most important thing is for each player to believe in himself.'   More.
