Arsene Wenger believes'Arsenal can win the league' 

Arsene Wenger has said that he believes his side have what it takes to end their 12-year wait for a Premier League title.

The Gunners will end the year top of the table following their 2-0 victory over Bournemouth on Tuesday night, level on points with surprise package Leicester City but above the Foxes on goal difference.

Since 2005 only Arsenal and Liverpool have failed to win the league having been top on New Year's Day, and Wenger acknowledged that his side have a "good chance" to end their drought this season.

"I believe that we are mature enough and that we have the requested quality to fight and compete," Wenger told reporters.

"The most important thing is to feel, at the end of the season, that we have given absolutely everything to be successful. After that, if somebody has been better than us, we will accept it, but we want to fight to show that we have a chance.

"I will remind you that only one team won the league without losing a game. That is Arsenal Football Club. It is not the date that is decided you win the league. It shows you that we have a good chance as the statistics show you that eight of the past 11 years the team who was top on New Year's Day won it."

The Gunners will begin 2016 by hosting Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
