The Gunners are currently on course to beat both Manchester City and Manchester United to a respectable second place finish this term after being made to settle for rescuing themselves with fourth place berths in recent seasons.
Wenger’s men suffered a sluggish start to the campaign, but are presently unbeaten in the league since toppling north London rivals Tottenham back in February.
And now that they are one of 2015’s in form teams, Wenger has spoken up about the progress his team has made since overcoming their shortfalls earlier on in the season.
“What you want to show during the season, is that you are getting better,” he said.
“We were faced with a big challenge especially with Chelsea out in front.
“They have proved to be more consistent from the start to the end and we weren’t able to reel them in.
“However, overall we have made good progress.”
