Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger warns Chelsea that the title race is not over
Arsene Wenger insists that there is still a long way to go in the race for the Premier League title
Arsene Wenger is convinced that Chelsea can still be caught in the race for this season’s Premier League title.
The Blues are currently six points clear at the top of the table heading into Wednesday’s clash with Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
But with 13 games played this season, the Arsenal manager believes that the title is far from wrapped up for the west London club.
“You cannot say the title race is over after 13 or 14 games,” said Wenger. “You also cannot say the six-point gap is not catchable.
“We have not started very well but we didn’t have the squad together since the start of the season.
“It was a post-World Cup start typically. We have to fight like mad now to come back as much as possible to show that we can compete in every single game.
“We have fought many times for the title. People always remember who won it but the fight has been very tight for long periods in the last eight or nine years.
“We have a big competition in England, we have to accept that. The Premier League level goes always up and this season Chelsea have started very well.
“They will be difficult to catch but everybody will fight to come back on them.”
