Wenger in search of perfection

Arsene Wenger reckons consistency could be the main characteristic that helps his team win the Premier League title this season.

His side currently sit third in the Premier League table but they are only two points behind leaders Manchester United.

Arsenal travel to St Andrews to face ninth-placed Birmingham City at the weekend and the manager will be looking for the Gunners to extend their impressive run of form which has left them unbeaten since early February.

Wenger told Sky Sports News his side are going into the last seven games of the season with "fantastic momentum" and "great belief", which needs to be maintained over the coming months.

Many football fans consider Arsenal to have the easiest run-in of the three Premier League title rivals, but Wenger has admitted they may need some help from other teams.

"There are three teams in the race and it is down to the team who are the most consistent. We can only focus on our own performances," said the manager.
"We know our route has to be perfect. To be perfect it is important we focus on our performances."

The Gunners are also hoping to land European silverware, but the Champions League odds suggest they will struggle to get past Barcelona.

Arsenal's title run-in could be buoyed in the coming weeks by the return of striker Robin van Persie. The Dutch international has been out of action since November but earlier this week Arsenal Wenger said he could be back in contention for the final four Premier League games.

Van Persie will also be looking to prove his fitness to Netherlands manager Bert van Marwijk as the forward will be vital if the side are to defy the World Cup 2010 odds and win the tournament.
