Arsene Wenger: Arsenal will continue fight for the title
Arsene Wenger insists that Arsenal will continue to fight for the title despite conceding they are now "outsiders"
Arsene Wenger has insisted that Arsenal have not given up hope of winning the Premier League title this season.
A disappointing run of just one win in five Premier League games has seen the Gunners drop to fourth place in the table ahead of Sunday’s clash with Everton at Goodison Park.
You don’t want to give up as long as you have a mathematical chance
Arsenal are seven points behind new leaders Liverpool with six games left to play, but the Frenchman promised that the north London side will continue to fight for the top-flight trophy, despite conceding that they are now outsiders in the race.
Asked whether Arsenal still have a chance of winning the title, Wenger replied: “I still think yes because you don’t want to give up as long as you have a mathematical chance.
“We are certainly out-out-outsiders now. We have a small percentage to do it but with this you have to give everything to make it possible.”
Arsenal are currently four points ahead of Roberto Martinez’s side but have played a game more than the Toffees.
And Wenger admitted that Sunday’s clash could prove pivotal in the race for Champions League qualification.
“I don’t think I need to explain how important it is for us,” he continued. “We have a target to win our games and we know that every game now becomes vital.
“I believe that we were a bit flat after the Swansea game and the Chelsea game. What was important was not to lose against [Manchester] City. At least we came out with a strong performance. I think we have turned the corner and hopefully we can show that against Everton.”
