Arsene Wenger has urged Arsenal to be more consistent in the Premier League title race.

The Gunners are currently in second place after Manchester City were 1-0 winners against Crystal Palace at The Etihad on Saturday.

It is down to consistency and until now we have been consistent

However Wenger’s men can reclaim the Premier League’s top spot if the north London side secure three points at Newcastle United.

And the Frenchman wants his Gunners side to continue to be consistent to give them a better chance of staying in the Premier League title race.

“We want to stay in the race,” Wenger said.

“We have won at West Ham and we go game by game with a big ambition – but we know as well that in the Premier League you always set high standards, and as soon as you drop a fraction, you are in trouble.

“It is down to consistency and until now we have been consistent. You are always judged on your last result, but at the end of the day it is down to how consistent you will be.

“We have just had some games that were very difficult because we played against Everton at home, we played in Naples (in the Champions League), we played at Manchester City and against Chelsea, so you know that you could drop some points there.

“But the most important thing is to come back and be consistent, as you would expect from us.”
