The North London side’s last title success came in the 2003-04 season, but the Emirates Stadium side did at least break a run of nine years without a trophy, after winning last season’s FA Cup.
Reports in the Daily Express carry quotes from Wenger, who believes that Arsenal’s wait for further success will come to an end during his remaining time at the club.
He said: “Of course it will happen before my contract runs out. We have not started this season very well but we have never had the full squad together since the start of the season.
“It has been a typical post World Cup start. But I believe that we we have what is needed to do it. We have to fight like mad now to come back as much as possible to show that we can compete in every single game.
“We have fought many times for the title. People always remember who won it but the fight has been very tight for long periods in each of the last eight or nine years.
“We have a big competition in England, we have to accept that. The level of the Premier League always goes up, and this season Chelsea have started very well.
“They will be difficult to catch – but everybody will fight to come back at them. You cannot say, after only 13 games, that the title race is over. You cannot say that a six point lead is not catchable.”
