Van Persie convinced Arsenal can win open title race

Arsenal ace Robin van Persie is convinced they're in the title hunt.

Van Persie is insisting the north London outfit have learned from mistakes they have made in the past and are ready to reclaim their standing at the summit of English football.

"We're very encouraged by other teams dropping points," he said, with Arsenal currently sitting fourth in the Premier League table and holding a game in hand on all of the sides above them.

"When you look at last weekend, Liverpool lost three points, Chelsea lost. In our last eight league games, we've won six so it's looking good for us.

"As long as we stay consistent against the smaller teams. We need to keep winning the three points against them.

"Last season we had some bad spells. We had four draws as well back-to-back so we have to avoid that."
