Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger believes the club are finally equipped and strong enough to compete for the Premier League title this season.
Arsenal have struggled to match the financial muscle and strength of the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City in recent years.
But the Gunners appear in much better shape to slug it out with their title rivals this season after winning seven matches.
Wenger, speaking in a press conference held during Saturday’s home clash with Middlesbrough, sees a more steely side to his squad this time.
He said, “Before the season everybody would say that it could be a very tight, interesting championship.
“After the first two or three games people felt that City would run away with it, or Man United would after they won their first three games as well.
“But I believe we are all in the same pack and it’s down to being consistent and trying to focus game after game. From Man City to United to Chelsea, everybody has a chance.
“We are consistent at the moment and I feel there is more to come out from our team.”
Arsenal is behind Manchester City on goal aggregate on the Premier League table and will be going top if they beat Middlesbrough at home on Saturday.
