Arsenal are 12 points adrift of leaders Manchester United and sit in sixth spot, just one point ahead of Liverpool.
Arsenal were top of the table for the first half of the season and have been the surprise package in the Champions League this season, winning the Europa League and beating Barcelona in the semi-finals.
Manager Arsene Wenger believes his team can still do the job at the top level if they keep winning, especially after their first victory of the campaign, 2-1 over Chelsea.
“It’s a bit of a different season, a little bit more difficult to play football but we are very confident,” Wenger said.
“We know we can get back into it.
I’m confident we can win at the moment.”
Arsenal, who have been without Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey, had a comfortable 2-0 win over Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday and have now won their last four league games, including victories over the reigning champions.
“Our players are very positive.
We have to keep working on this,” said Wenger.”
I know we have to be the best team.
If we keep playing like this, it’s possible.”
