Consistency key in best ever title race, says Arsenal's Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes the side that can put the best run of form together will come out on top in what he considers the best Premier League title race he’s seen, ESPN has reported.

Wenger takes charge of his 1,000th Arsenal game on Saturday as the Gunners travel to title rivals Chelsea. Wenger’s side are four points behind the Blues but have a game in hand and Wenger has spoken of the importance of mental strength in the final weeks of the season.


“It's a fact that every game is so demanding that as soon as you have a little bit less mental energy, you are in danger,” he told the Arsenal website. “I have said since January that the most consistent team will win it in the end.


“There is a feeling that if we get through these games, it will strengthen the belief and determination of the team,” Wenger added. “That will be massive. If we get through well these next games, it will be a big part in [Arsenal’s title challenge].”


Wenger added that in his long career in English football he can’t think of a more exciting climax to the season, where there was still so much to play for with 10 games to go.


“It is the best title race I can remember. In terms of the number of teams still involved with nine games to go, eight for some, this is certainly the highest number I have seen competing for the Premier League,” Wenger said. “This league is so competitive that anyone can drop points anywhere.”


Wenger took over at Arsenal in 1996 and after last summer’s retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United is the longest-serving manager in English football. In his time at first Highbury and now the Emirates Stadium, Wenger has won three Premier League titles and four FA Cups, as well as three Manager of the Season awards and two Manager of the Year awards from the League Managers’ Association.
