Wenger backs Mikel Arteta for Premier League title challenge: 'Arsenal have every ingredient and no real weakness'

Wenger believes the Gunners have what it takes to compete for a top-four spot. In fact, they can aim even higher this season.

Arsenal has managed to keep Aubameyang and are a very balanced team.

"But I’m convinced Arsenal can be in the top four, if not more," Arsene Wenger said during the Q&A session hosted by The Guardian.

"Why not more? They can be the surprise package for me this year: they bought well, they strengthened the defence well.

"And they kept the players who were already there. In my last year I bought Aubameyang, they kept him. They have every ingredient and no real weakness."

The recent addition of Thomas Partey certainly takes optimism to another level among the Gunners faithful.

With Mikel Arteta's side getting victories in situations they would have lost or drawn a few months back, there are hopes of returning to the Champions League next season.

Yet for the Premier League win, we will probably need some luck on our side—but it's telling that guru Wenger is so confident in the team's chances to challenge for the title.
