London: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that his players must maintain the standards they set against Manchester City if they are to keep pace in the Premier League title race.
Monday's 2-1 victory over third-place City moved Wenger's side to within two points of leaders Leicester City and they can consolidate that position when they travel to face Southampton today. The Frenchman challenged his players to match the levels they set in beating City and confirm their credentials as a team capable of sustaining their title
"It was an important win for us, but we already had a good confidence level," Wenger said. "To win these sorts of game, you need to believe you can do it."
