Defiant Arsene Wenger maintains the Barclays Premier League title is "Arsenal's to win" despite blowing the chance to end 2011 level on points with leaders Manchester United.

In what has become a frustrating trait of the Gunners' season, they failed to build on victory over championship rivals Chelsea by being held to a 2-2 draw at relegation battlers Wigan on Wednesday night after a late own goal from Sebastien Squillaci.

As such, Wenger's men remain third, two points behind United, who have a match in hand, and Manchester City, who have played two games more, but Wenger said: "It is Arsenal's title to win. We have to go on a run and be consistent."

He added: "The only thing we have learnt from this first six months is that the team who will be the most consistent, with great emotional stamina and resolve will win it.

"It could be the league of the mentally strong.

"It is a league with a lot of ups and downs and the teams who deal the best with that will certainly win it."

Wenger insisted: "We have always been strong mentally, but we have not been as mature as we are now.

"I think we have courage, intelligence and talent in the squad. To be capable of putting these three ingredients together in every single game will be decisive."
