Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is ruling out his sides chances of winning the Premier League, but did admit the Gunners would need leaders Chelsea to drop points against Manchester United on Saturday evening, reports Sky Sports.
Arsenal have been in fantastic form in 2015, winning their last eight Premier League games on the bounce. Such form has put them second in the table with six games to go. They are currently seven points behind Chelsea, who still have a game in hand, and Wenger was under no illusions that a lot of things had to go their way to see them winning the title.
Chelsea still have to face Arsenal before the season comes a close, so there’s another chance for Gunners to make back more of the points deficit. The Blues also have to lock horns with Liverpool, so Arsenal cannot be discounted from the title-race, especially with recent performances from Jose Mourinho’s side being less than convincing.
When asked, Arsene Wenger wouldn’t rule out his side’s title credentials, but felt so much work still needs to be done before they will be genuinely contending. He was quoted as saying: Mathematically, yes. We have to win our games and we want to win our games, that is all we can do.”
