Arsene Wenger believes that in-form Arsenal can lift the Premier League crown this season.

The Frenchman has been buoyed by a run of recent performances that he feels prove the Gunners should be considered credible challengers for the top flight title.

Wenger watched with delight as his side made it 10 away matches with a 2-1 win in Marseilles in the Champions League.

Arsenal get the chance to claim more points when they host Stoke in the Premier League on Sunday.

And ahead of the clash with Mark Hughes’ side, Wenger said: “I believe we have a chance to win the title. My energy is focused on making sure we grab that chance.”

The Emirates boss admits it will be a tough task against Stoke and he says he expects a battle.

He added: “They are a good side. What we have learnt in the last two years is that every single game against them is a battle.”

Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta is back in contention for the game after being sidelined recently though injury.
