Arsenal will face Premier League leaders Liverpool at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
“Everyone has been having a go at Arsenal but the Premier League is very competitive and not easy for anyone,” explained the Frenchman to the Sun.
“They are still in the race. It will be difficult of course because it’s better to be eight points ahead than eight points behind as Arsenal are at the moment – but it could be five after Sunday if they beat Liverpool.”
He added: “I watch every Arsenal game either live or recorded and I have Arsenal TV too. I will definitely be watching the Liverpool game and hope they win.”
