Arsène Wenger believes that the comeback against Fulham has given the best indication that Arsenal can challenge for the Premier League title this season
The Craven Cottage side seemed set to shock Emirates Stadium on the opening weekend before late goals from Robin van Persie and Alex Hleb a snatched dramatic victory.
Since then, Arsenal have remained unbeaten. They have rattled up two victories over Sparta Prague and edged out then leaders Manchester City at Emirates Stadium. However for Wenger, the attributes from the first match remain key to any title bid.
"I feel the Fulham game was a consequence of our remarkable preparation in pre-season and the remarkable spirit in the team," said the manager before the international break.
"If we keep that spirit, if we keep that ambition, if we keep that solidarity - as I am sure that we will - then we will be threat for this League."
