Arsene Wenger believes that Chelsea are still in the hunt for the Premier League title despite their stuttering start to the season.

The Blues are currently languishing in 15th place in the top-flight table after a disastrous start to the their title defence, with the west London side currently 14 points behind leaders Leicester City.

Jose Mourinho’s men did return to winning ways in the top flight last weekend with a 1-0 triumph over Norwich City at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea will be hoping to kick-start their season with a victory against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane in Sunday’s crunch Premier League clash.

But despite their current position in the table, Arsenal boss Wenger is refusing to count the Blues out of the title race.

Wenger told an Arsenal news conference on Thursday: “Mathematically you cannot rule them [Chelsea] out – even the bottom teams are in it.

“It is so difficult. It is so tight and I don’t even look at the league anymore because it is very, very tight.

“Last week we had a bad result against West Brom and so did Manchester City [against Liverpool] so it compacted the whole table.

“I believe it is a big opportunity for us but many teams can tell you that. We are in a position where you want to be after 13 games but there are 25 to go.”

Arsenal, who are currently fourth in the table, travel to Norwich City in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
