Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal can mount a serious challenge for the Premier League title this season.

The Gunners continued their recent fine form with a 3-0 win over Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Second-half goals from Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koscielny and Joel Campbell handed Wenger’s men victory and kept them in second place in the Premier League table.

Arsenal are currently level on points with leaders Manchester City after 11 games.

And Wenger feels that the north London side have underlined their position as genuine title contenders this season.

Wenger told his post-match news conference on Saturday afternoon: “We are very ambitious, very hungry as well and if we play like that we will be in the [title] fight.

“In the first half it was difficult, but in the second half we upped our purpose and tempo and had pace in our combinations. Once we scored the first goal we were the dominant team and won the game normally.”

Arsenal now turn their attentions to the Champions League as they gear up for their trip to Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.

The Gunners then host local rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Emirates Stadium as they look to make it three successive wins in the Premier League and continue their good domestic form.
