Arsenal in a strong position

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claims his side are in a strong position to mount a challenge for the Premier League.
Arsenal are currently two points behind leaders Manchester United after having played a game more.
While questions about their mental strength in big games still abound - the fact remains that the Gunners have already played Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City away from home.
Out of a possible 12 points, they have garnered only four - but Wenger believes the title remains up for grabs.

"I believe overall this championship is very open," he told the Official Matchday Programme.
"We have played at Manchester United, at Chelsea, at Manchester City and at Liverpool so we are in a very strong position.
"What we have learned in the away games against the big teams is that we are there with our quality.
"The rest of the season will be decided by what we have learnt until now, how much we will improve and how much confidence we can take from our run until now."
Wenger's men will have the opportunity to show how much they have learnt soon enough. They host Carlo Ancleotti's Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Monday.
