Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski believes this season's title race will be a close call, due to the number of team's contesting for first place.
The Pole believes the Gunners are more mature than before, and are up there with the other teams in the hunt for the title.
Fabianski does believe, however, that it is harder to predict who will come out on top with the number of teams who can take points off the big boys.
He explained: "We are mature enough to challenge for the title because we have kept almost the same players for a few years now and everyone has the necessary experience to fight for the title.
"This year the top is really tight. You don't just have three teams, you have four or five. It is really exciting. When you look at every single game there are some results that you would not expect before the game."
The 25-year-old wants an improvement in Arsenal's home form, as they prepare for what he believes will be an important month in their season.
He said: "We have two massive Premier League games in front of us – three including tomorrow's game – and also we have a Champions League game.
"This month is a really really important month and maybe after that we can have a better view.
"At the moment we are in a good position and we have to keep focus – and start winning at home as well. If we keep working hard, stay focused and add some little things then we have a chance. We have the belief, for sure."
This year the top is really tight. You don't just have three teams, you have four or five. It is really exciting.
