Arsene Wenger is still convinced that Arsenal can challenge the Premier League leaders as it’s possible that Manchester City’s form won’t continue.
The Gunners sit in fifth position in the Premier League standings following their convincing 5-2 victory over Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday.
They are nine points behind leaders City – who have won eight out of their nine matches this season – and four behind Manchester United.
And Wenger, speaking before their win on Sunday, is convinced that the Gunners can still catch the leading pack.
“Football’s about the moment,” he told Sky Sports. “What looks unstoppable in October might not be the case in December. But that can only happen if other teams continue to believe in their quality.”
During the interview with Sky Sports’ Patrick Davison, Wenger also suggested he still has maximum faith in his own ability.
“I started this job at the age of 33 so I’ve done 35 years without having a stop at all,” Wenger added. “There’s no break; it’s 35 years of total focus and dedication to football life.
“Why keep doing it? Because I love it. Because it’s a job where I think you can have a very positive influence: on people’s lives, on results, on the dimensions of a football club, on values – because I think first of all a club is about values, which we forget a lot today.
“I feel on a mission to carry these values through for this club because I think this club is usually respected all over the world for its values and it carries through the generations.”
