Cape Town - Arsene Wenger has challenged his side to finish the season unbeaten and secure second place in the Premier League but what about next season?
Asked whether Arsenal could mount a title challenge next season, Wenger said: "Ask me in August. Give me a breather. What is at stake now is to finish second."
"We want to continue to win our games as we're doing now. I'm not a prophet.
"Football is unpredictable, no one knows how strong teams will be at the start of the season. What is important is to start strong.
"We want to finish as high as we can. It's about giving your maximum until the last day.
"Not having to think about the Champions League qualifier - it is better for the sleep during the summer," the 65-year-old Wenger added.
