Arsene Wenger delivers verdict on Arsenal’s title hopes after Stoke win

The Arsenal boss watched his side come from a goal down to beat the Potters 3-1 at The Emirates

Arsene Wenger declared that Arsenal deserved their place at the top of the Premier League table after Saturday’s 3-1 comeback win over Stoke City.

The Gunners had to come from behind after Charlie Adam’s penalty had put the visitors 1-0 up at The Emirates.

However, Theo Walcott levelled before half-time and Mesut Ozil’s header made it 2-1 after the break.

Alex Iwobi then scored his first Premier League goal of the season to wrap up the win and leave Arsenal level on points with Chelsea but ahead on goals scored heading into Sunday’s round of games.

Wenger is looking to guide Arsenal to the title for the first time since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 season.

And the Frenchman reflected on his side’s recent good form after the game.

Wenger told Sky Sports: “We stay up there and that’s what we want, we want to be in the fight.

“We are on a good run, with good momentum, and it’s now down to us to keep the humility and focus and be capable of turning up in every game, because in the Premier League every game is difficult.

“You have to maintain it and that’s our target now, to keep that strength and take care of it and show that we can produce it in every game.”
