Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger refused to be drawn talking up the Gunners’ title prospects, after their recent win against Burnley narrowed the gap between them and Premier League leaders Chelsea, reports
The Londoners were put through their paces against Burnley, but took an early lead through midfielder Aaron Ramsey. They held off a response from the Clarets to seal their 8th consecutive win in the Premier League, while cutting their points deficit to Chelsea to just four.
While the Blues do have two games in hand, any slip-ups from them could see Arsenal in great shape to topple their rivals in their remaining games, and Wenger’s men are still in with a shout of winning the title as a result.
But the long-serving manager didn’t want to talk about his sides title hopes, as he feels Chelsea could still be out of sight if they win both their games in hand on Arsenal. Nevertheless, the gunners are in fantastic form at the perfect time of the season. Eight consecutive league wins sees them in their best run for over 10 years, and Wenger did admit being pleased with their consistency.
“At the moment, (Chelsea) are two games in hand, but we keep going and that is the most important thing that we keep that consistency. That’s why the win was so important for us. It was a battling performance today, more than a fluent performance,” he said.
