Wenger reveals title desire

Arsene Wenger is confident that his Arsenal side can challenge for the Premier League title this season after cruising to a 4-1 victory at Wolves on Saturday evening.
The three points lifted the Gunners up to second in the Premier League table, at least until Chelsea's encounter with Manchester United on Sunday.
The win extended Arsenal's unbeaten run to 13 matches in all competitions, although they were helped on their way by two own goals from Ronald Zubar and Jody Craddock.
An upbeat Wenger said: "The desire is there (to win the title). We just want to strengthen our belief.
"The most important factor is we play for each other as we do. We have to focus on our performance and continue to develop our style of play.
"We were out of it (the title race) last year after we lost five games in 14. Two years ago, though, we were close to winning it, people forget that. We will keep our humility and play our game.
"It is too early to calculate too much. The Chelsea v United match is fantastic for us. Let's hope it is a good game and you enjoy it. You always enjoy a game when you have won.
"Also, I would not discount Liverpool at the moment, even though they have lost five games. Now everyone has lost two, so there is a difference between now and last year."
