Danny Welbeck has said that Arsenal will learn from their mistakes of last term and mount a serious challenge for the Premier League title next season.

The Gunners endured an inconsistent first half of the season in a run of form that undermined them, as eventual champions Chelsea sat 15 points ahead by Christmas.

However, Arsene Wenger's side prompted belief that a title bid looms next time around by winning 12 of their first 15 league outings in 2015, and Welbeck says that rich vein of form stands them in good stead.

"Chelsea won the league and credit to them," he told Rabona magazine. "They were very consistent last season with their performances and results.

"There have been times when they might not have played that well but they've still got the results. They've got a winning mentality, they just move onto the next game and get those three points. With Arsenal, at the start of the season we weren't getting as many points as we should have and that's obviously held us back further down the line.

"We don't want to set our aims low, we want to be the best we can be. After the run we went on, it shows that we can handle it in the Premier League and keep racking up wins and three points after three points. That's something we want to do and I think that's something we can look to do again next season. We're determined to keep on improving and are determined to come back stronger next season."
