Arsene Wenger has challenged his Arsenal squad to remain consistent in the Barclays Premier League and lift the title in May.

The Gunners are currently second in the table, 4 points adrift of Manchester United but with a game in hand on the Red Devils.

Speaking after Arsenal's victory in the FA Cup, Wenger said: "We are very much in the race. If we win our games, it depends on us."

"We'll give it absolutely everything as the league is the most important trophy for us."

Wenger has played down reports of the title being a two-horse race and believes that Manchester City and Chelsea are still in with a chance of lifting the trophy come May.

"The run-in is tight and I don't rule out Chelsea or Manchester City. If we maintain our consistency, we have a very good chance."

"We play Man United at home and we will see where we stand then. We dropped points at the start but since November, we are consistent at home. That will be vital," said Wenger.

The Gunner's boss will be looking for his side to secure a victory over Sunderland at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday and reduce United's lead at the top to just 1 point.


Manchester United travel to the Emirates on May 1st for what will be a blockbuster battle significant in deciding where the Barclays Premier League title will reside come the end of the season.

Wenger is relying on his Arsenal squad to remain consistent and lift the trophy for the first time since 2004.
