Reina told the People: “I am optimistic even though we are nine points behind Chelsea and Man United.
“We can win the title this year if we start playing together as a team and the new players begin to really fit-in.
“I am always open to criticism. I am concerned, but I can only assure supporters that I am the same keeper as last season.
“I did everything well then so I believe the same will happen this time.”
