Arsene Wenger insists Arsenal can mount a genuine Barclays Premier League title challenge despite the millions being spent by the likes of Manchester City.

City have splashed out £80million on four players so far this summer in a bid to break into the top four and secure Champions League football. Arsenal, in contrast, have spent just £8.5million on defender Laurent Koscielny while Moroccan striker Marouane Chamakh moved to the Emirates on a free transfer.

"I am very confident [we'll do better than last season]," Wenger told the club's website.

"We know in England that the Premier League is the biggest league in the world and everybody invests a lot of money.

"We invest in our work, in our beliefs, in the quality of our behaviour and I am confident that will pay off. "We finished third last year and we hope we can improve on that - but the race will be tough."

Arsenal's pre-season preparations continue on Friday against AC Milan in the Emirates Cup.
