Arsene Wenger has hit back at the Match of the Day pundits for criticising Arsenal this season, stating his side are good enough to win the league.

The Gunners sit top of the Premier League after 13 games, having won ten, drawn one and lost two, as they have carried on their reign at the top with a 3-0 victory away to the unpredictable Cardiff City; Aaron Ramsey scoring twice against his former club.

But later on in the evening on Match Of The Day, a number of pundits opted to say Arsenal don't have enough about them to win the league, causing Wenger to respond to The Daily Mail and dismiss their credentials as experts.

"If you say - 'Arsenal won't win the league because they haven't won it in eight years', then it is just their opinion."

The north London side's last trophy was back in 2005 when they beat Manchester United on penalties in the FA Cup, since then the Frenchman hasn't been able to win a trophy with the club he has served since 1996.

The Arsenal manager went on to say that everyone has their own opinion, and he thinks his side are good enough to win the league.

"When I came here people said to me I couldn't win trophies because I am foreign. Everyone has their logic. I just think you win it through your quality," Wenger said.

The 64-year-old took over the Arsenal job in 1996, before winning the double in 1998, including the Community Shield months later, as Wenger had a great team comprised with the likes of Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Dennis Bergkamp.

Now the former AS Monaco boss has got a different look to his team with Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud leading the charge; and the French coach believes this year, his side are good enough.

"If we didn't win for eight years, it was because we weren't good enough. We have a good opportunity to show we are good enough, so let's take it."

Arsenal's next game is at home to Hull, before the Gunners face a difficult December, taking on the likes of Manchester City, Napoli and Chelsea within the next couple of weeks.
