Arsene Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger remains confident that his team has a chance to win the Premier League title to end his side's eight-year-long trophy drought.

The Gunners registered a 2-1 win over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium to extend their unbeaten run to 12 games in all competitions. Serge Gnabry opened the scoring for the north London side before Aaron Ramsey doubled to lead to score his fifth goal in last four matches played in all competitions.

The English champions Manchester United suffered a bad start to their season in the Premier League era under David Moyes' debut season at Old Trafford. Meanwhile, Manchester City have already seen two defeats against Cardiff City and Aston Villa.

"We have a chance. It's very open. We have the desire of course. You see that as well. But it's an early stage with just six games played. I would have taken 15 points today. Let's just try to keep going," the Guardian quoted Wenger as saying.

"There are maybe six or seven teams. You can even add Everton to the top four, plus Liverpool and Tottenham. It will be very interesting.

"Today, what has changed compared to years before maybe, is that when playing at 80% you cannot win against any team in the Premier League. You have to be between 95 and 100 - and that promises a very interesting season," he added.

Wenger saw his side lose the opening game of the season 3-1 at home to Aston Villa, despite taking an early lead. However, the Gunners have bounced back and are in a brilliant form since then. They are unbeaten in the last nine games played in all competitions.

"It's terrible to lose the first game of this season but that was the first one we had lost since March. I was proven right by the fact that, after that [Villa defeat], we have responded in a positive way. We have improved. We have good stability," Arsenal manager said.

Arsenal are top of the Premier League table with 15 points from five games, with second place Liverpool two points behind the Gunners. United are in the lower half of the table in 12th spot with seven points from seven games.
