Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes that if his side are going to win the Premier League title this season they will need to make the Emirates a fortress, according to Sky Sports.
The Gunners remain unbeaten in all competitions so far this season but face their sternest test yet when they entertain the Premier League leaders Chelsea at home tomorrow.
Wenger believes that it is important not to lose against the Premier League’s elite, “If we do well at home against the strong teams, it will of course have a big impact on our chances in the league.”
The Arsenal chief also reckons that the Chelsea encounter will give him a good indicator as to how serious his side are about challenging for the title, “I believe in our potential, but we have to show we are capable to deal with all kinds of problems that consistency demands.”
Win or lose tomorrow, Wenger believes it is too early to make judgements on teams yet, “We will certainly know a bit more about us on Saturday afternoon – but much more about us after 10 or 15 games.”
