Arsenal are still in the title race, declares Arsene Wenger
The Arsenal manager is adamant that the Gunners are still in the Premier League title race
Arsene Wenger insists that Arsenal cannot be written off in this season’s Premier League title race.
The Gunners find themselves nine points behind leaders Chelsea after nine games, leading to question marks over their potential to challenge for the top-flight crown.
I don’t write us off, I let [other] people do it
However, the Frenchman, whose side host Burnley at Emirates Stadium on Saturday, feels that there is plenty more to come from his side.
“I think [the] attitude [has been] fantastic, dedication fantastic, on the efficiency front we can do better,” said Wenger.
“If you look at the chances we have created and the chances we have given away, I think we have created many chances and our finishing was not always at the expected level.
“We give very few chances away but those that we have given away are of quality, and that is what we want to do better.
“I don’t write us off, I let [other] people do it. That is a little bit linked with mathematics.
“It doesn’t consider against who we played, how many times we played away, what is the [quality] of the team we played against, what missing players we had in the big games. That is absolutely normal but I have a strong belief we will come back and we can just prove that on the pitch.”
