Arsene Wenger admits that Chelsea look “untouchable” in the race for the Premier League title after their stunning start to the season.

Jose Mourinho’s men stretched their unbeaten start to a club-record 17 games with victory at Liverpool on Saturday to leave them four points clear at the top of the table.

And after watching his Arsenal side lose further ground on the leaders following a 2-1 defeat at Swansea City on Sunday, Wenger conceded that Mourinho’s men are already looking like the champions elect.

“At the moment Chelsea turns around an average of 100 points per season,” said Wenger.

“If you look at the number of points they have today, if they keep that up nobody will touch them and that’s for sure.

“It doesn’t look like there’s anybody capable of challenging them at the moment.”

The Frenchman, whose side are now 12 points behind the leaders, continued: “There’s no obvious reason. They had a good start and we have gone through that too.

“As long as we don’t lose, you don’t question yourself. There’s a little bit extra spirit in the team that gets them through when it’s tight.”

Will Chelsea win the title?
