Arsene Wenger believes consistency and a massive points total will be needed in order to gain Premiership glory this season.

The mighty Gunners came agonisingly close to becoming League Champions last term but just fell away towards the end, however the points amassed would have been enough to win silverware in previous seasons.

“This season you will need a high number of points and you will have to be consistent,” said Wenger. “I don`t know how many we`ll need, ask me again in January then we will have a better idea.

Wenger then still showed he has a sense of humour by continuing with, “But you might have a surprising team coming in to challenge like Man City, Tottenham and maybe Portsmouth. It will certainly be very tight and very interesting.

“Last season, I feel we did not get enough credit for what we did. We were very close. We made 83 points in the League and I have won the title with 78 before. But the competition was very high last season and looks like it will be the same this season.”
