Arsenal intent on challenging for Premier League title

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has urged his side to become a genuine Premiership contender next season.

The North London club managed a fourth-place finish in 2012/13 courtesy of Sunday's 1-0 win at Newcastle United which gives them Champions League football again next campaign.

But Wenger also wants to push the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City for the Premier League title.

"We want to do that next season. Let's not forget the consistency we've shown over the years in qualifying for the Champions League and knowing everybody is desperate to get in there," he told Sky Sports.

"Consistency is the most difficult thing in our sport. We need it over the season.

"We have played against a very good Tottenham team, a very good Everton team and we needed to be really special to come back to get in front of them (and finish fourth)."
