Arsene Wenger is convinced his Arsenal side will be able to claw their way back into the Premier League title race in December.

The Gunners, who drew 1-1 at Everton on Wednesday, have slipped down to seventh in the table after having won just one of their last five league games.

Wenger’s men are already 12 points behind leaders Manchester United but the Frenchman is backing his side to string a series of positive results together next month, starting with the visit of Swansea on Saturday.

“At the moment the two Manchester sides [are top],” Wenger, whose side have taken six points from the last 15 available, told Arsenal Player.

“They have not been spectacular but efficient, and they have made the maximum of the chances they have created.

“For example, Manchester United have already lost three games and have lost in the Champions League as well. It is exactly what we have done but they took more points and had less draws than we did. That has been the difference until now.

“We will come back. Now we have six games, four at home, and if we do well in this block I think we have a chance to come back. But of course it is vital for us to do well in these games.”
