Arsene Wenger believes there are several teams that can challenge for this season's Premier League title.
Arsenal currently sit in fourth position, but are just two points behind league leaders Manchester City and two ahead of fifth-placed Tottenham.
Wenger thinks the key to remaining in a “difficult” title race is to be consistent - starting with Saturday's visit of Sunderland.
“For a spell where we got only two points from our last three games, we are only two points off the top,” he said.
“But if you look at the whole pack it is very tight and very compact and that means everybody can deliver the same speech basically.
“You look across the league and every game is difficult for everybody. It is down to consistency. We have gone through a spell that has been a bit difficult for us but I believe we are in there and it’s down to how well we respond.
“I’m convinced that we will respond very well. Mathematically, maybe 10 to 12 [can win the title]. Realistically, about six.”
