Crisis averted at Gunners

Arsenal have rediscovered some confidence and that is key as they look to battle for the Premier League title this season.

That is the view of Arsene Wenger, who looks to have turned around the mini crisis at the Emirates after successive defeats to West Brom and Chelsea. Victories over Birmingham and then Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Tuesday seem to have put their season back on track, and the odds on Premier League winner reflect this.

Arsenal sit in third place in the table, five points behind leaders Chelsea, and face another tough test of their Premier League title credentials when they travel to face big-spending Manchester City at Eastlands on Sunday in what the weekend Premier League betting suggests will be a close run thing.

The Gunners have not beaten City in their last three meetings, and just over 12 months ago they were destroyed 4-2 in Manchester - but at least come Sunday they will have had more rest time as their opponents play in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Wenger claims there is a "good team attitude" throughout his Arsenal side and he feels their season is not back on track.

"We have won our last two games now and that is important because we go into the Manchester City game with a good level of confidence and with some certainties in the way we want to behave," he added.

Arsenal's goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has outlined the importance of Sunday's clash.
The Pole has admitted the City clash is a "massive game" that the Gunners "have to win" if they wish to win the Premier League title this season.
