Arsene Wenger: We want to challenge for the Premier League title


Arsenal will fight for the title next season according to boss Arsene Wenger.

The Frenchman was speaking after his side's easy win over West Bromwich Albion on Sunday afternoon that enabled the Gunners to finish the second in third place.

"Theo Walcott had a great game today. He was on fire and moved well. Jack Wilshere as well," Wenger is quoted as saying by the BBC.

"I had no pre-set mind before the game regarding the FA Cup final team. I have not thought about next Saturday. I wanted to pick a team to win the game.

"We had a slow start to the season, but progressively, we got stronger, and from January onwards we got competitive.

"We have qualified directly for next season's Champions League. But we want more. We want to challenge for the Premier League title. But first we want to win the FA Cup next weekend.

"The first thing we need is to get everybody back in pre-season and not lose so many players. Walcott was out for a year, Wilshere for six months."
