Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists any pressure from Manchester United won't shake his players' self-belief as they go into the second-half of this season's title battle.

After victory over West Ham, Wenger said: "It is too early to go into mind games. I feel going into January we will rely on our performances.

"Manchester United will be a tough opponent but we have one thing, we have belief, and we have talent and we are ready to fight.

"This team is hungry. So that is good ingredients - but I don't count only Man United - I still feel Chelsea and Liverpool are there.

"I prefer to lead from the front, definitely. Because you then just rely on your results.

"If you are not at the front you have to hope the others don't perform.

"My [New Year] resolution is to give absolutely everything I have, every bit of energy, to make this club successful.

"It's a pleasure to work with the team, they give absolutely everything so I want to give everything to make this team successful."
