Arsenal can win the Double! Arsene sets his sights on League and Euro glory

07 March 2010 01:41
Arsene Wenger insists Arsenal can win both the Premier League and the European Cup after a fourth successive league victory lifted them level on points with title favourites Chelsea.

The Frenchman's team showed their resilience in the face of a Burnley fightback in their first game since Aaron Ramsey's terrible injury, with Theo Walcott securing victory with a brilliant goal.

Arsenal's win increases the pressure on Chelsea and Manchester United, who went two points clear at the top with a 1-0 win at Wolves and, with the least demanding run-in, the Gunners could even be favourites.

Wenger's players all came out wearing Ramsey's No 16 to honour their team-mate, who is recovering from a badly broken leg.

The Arsenal manager will be desperate not to lose his captain CescFabregas, too, after he damaged a hamstring following his 17th goal ofthe season.

Wenger accepts that he has not had a deep enough squad in recentseasons but he believes his young side now have the necessaryexperience and resilience to claim a double.

'I think we can,' he said. 'But it depends whether we keep our players and avoid more injuries.'

Next is the Champions League on Tuesday, when Arsenal have to overcome a 2-1 deficit against Porto to reach the quarter-finals.

'Two months ago I would have said that our best chance is in theChampions League but now I would say that it's the Premier League,'said Wenger.
