Arsène Wenger is confident his side will come back into Premier League contention over the course of the next month.

The Gunners are 12 points behind leaders Manchester United in seventh place, but have played eight of their 14 matches away from home.

However, four of Arsenal’s six league games in December will be played at Emirates Stadium and Wenger believes it is a good opportunity to build up momentum.

“At the moment the two Manchester sides [are top],” he told Arsenal Player. “They have not been spectacular but efficient, and they have made the maximum of the chances they have created.

“For example, Manchester United have already lost three games and have lost in the Champions League as well. It is exactly what we have done but they took more points and had less draws than we did. That has been the difference until now.

“We will come back. Now we have six games, four at home, and if we do well in this block I think we have a chance to come back. But of course it is vital for us to do well in these games.”
