Alexis Sanchez doubts Arsenal’s chances of Premier League glory this season 1 Alexis Sanchez believes Arsenal ‘lack self-belief’ to win the Premier League title this season.The Gunners blew a big chance to increase the pressure on leaders Leicester when they were beaten at home 2-1 by Swansea on Wednesday night.Joel Campbell had opened the scoring for the Gunners with an early goal, with the hosts also hitting the woodwork on three occasionsBut goals from Wayne Routledge and Swans captain Ashley Williams saw the Welsh side leave the Emirates Stadium with all three points for the third time in four years.And Sanchez, who hit the post in the first half before cracking a second-half free-kick against the crossbar, feels it is the squad’s confidence – or lack of it – has seen them suffer a damaging run of just three wins from 11 games in all competitions.“We lack self-belief, that we can actually be champions,” he told Directv Sports.“I think we can win the Premier League with the players we have. That said, we lack a certain hunger. We need to step out onto the pitch as if we’re already 1-0 up.“I remember a game against Manchester United last year. The lads looked hungry for silverware as we took to the pitch.“We crushed them in the first 20 minutes and went 3-0 up. We were hungry and brimming with confidence that day.”
