ENGLAND - Arsene Wenger has long insisted his Arsenal team is good enough to win the English Premier League title.
They go to bottom-placed Portsmouth today in a powerful position and to prove that their manager's bold assertion is correct.
At the halfway point in an increasingly fascinating season, Arsenal are four points off the lead with a precious game in hand. Who would have predicted that after their abject defeat at Manchester City earlier in the season?
"The turning point for us was the second half at Liverpool earlier this month when we won after being behind at half time," Wenger said.
"I have been saying for some time that the team is talented, is hungry and has a great spirit. There is also, I notice, a desire to be successful."
"Of course, we have won nothing yet but we are in a strong position and it is an interesting situation now at the top of the table."
Wenger's conviction was fuelled by the way his team demolished top four rivals Aston Villa 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. - Sapa-AFP
