Pires praises Arsenal's strength

Midfielder Robert Pires feels Arsenal are better equipped to challenge for multiple trophies this season.

The Frenchman insists he is happy that Arsenal have strength in depth, even if it means his place comes under threat.

"With Jose-Antonio Reyes, Gael Clichy, Cesc Fabregas, Robin Van Persie and Philippe Senderos we're more solid," he told French newspaper l'Equipe.

"You can't complain about competition, it is healthy and this season we can envisage competing in every race."

Arsenal have taken their unbeaten run in the Premiership to 48 games this season, and their next test comes against Aston Villa on Saturday.

But Pires added: "We don't think of the record run permanently.

"We know we have to lose some time. Every match we play brings us closer to the end.

"I know all the fans want to see us try to defend the record for a 50th match against Manchester United.

"It would be cool but what interests us is winning the championship again."

I'd love to believe it, but I'm still not so sure... only time will tell I suppose, we'll see.
