Arsene Believes Gunners Are Contenders

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has once again talked up the Gunner’s chances as genuine title contenders after his team's comeback win over West Ham on Boxing Day.

The longest serving manger in the Premier League then commented on his team's character in the face of adversity.

“Does this performance prove you are genuine title contenders? Yes. The team wants to do well and the character is great,” he told reporters after his side came from a goal down to beat the Hammers 2-1.

“Our concentration is top,” he added.

 “We’ve answered some big questions. If we hadn’t won we would have had to answer many questions. It was the kind of game that many people would have questioned us if we had not won and even more if we’d lost.”

The Frenchman then went on to lament the busy schedule blaming the schedule makers for his side’s recent run of four games without a win.

“We have had a difficult period but, honestly, that’s mainly down to the schedule we have had,” the Gunners boss added.  

“I completely think that the schedule was absolutely horrendous.”

“When you do not win for four games it is important to come back for the confidence level and win.”
