Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is sure the Gunners will stand up to the scrutiny that comes with challenging for the Premier League title, Sky Sports has reported.

Arsene Wenger’s side currently top the table with 45 points from their 20 games, a point ahead of Chelsea and 11 clear of defending champions Manchester United, who are seventh. Wilshere feels that Arsenal have discovered the fortitude needed to dig down and claim results even when the team isn’t playing at its best.

Something clicked towards the end of last season when we knew we had to get fourth, there were games we weren't playing well in, but we were still winning and that has carried on this season,” Wilshere said.

Sometimes you can't always play your best and you have to still win games - you have seen the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea do that in the past and we are doing it now,” the England international continued. “Every team is going to go through a little blip. We had ours and luckily came back strong.

Arsenal’s next league fixture sees the leaders visit Aston Villa on January 13. Villa are one of only three teams to beat Arsenal in the league this season, winning 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium on the opening day of the season.
