Impossible to predict title race, says Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that it is impossible to predict who will win the Premier League title this season following Manchester City’s defeat to Chelsea, according to ESPN.

The 64-year-old claimed that City looked ‘jaded’ as they were overcome 1-0 by a ‘dangerous’ Chelsea side on Monday, in a result that threw the title race wide open.

The Gunners currently sit top of the Premier league but are just two points ahead of City and Chelsea, who are both on 53 points and very much in the mix.

“[The title race] is never as simple as everyone predicts it,” said Wenger. "” said a long time ago that nobody will be absolutely above [the others]. It will be down to consistency.

“Chelsea always looked dangerous and City looked for me a bit jaded. They were not as fluent or as strong physically as they were at Tottenham, but it could have gone to 1-1, or it could have gone 2-0 for Chelsea.”

While many consider Chelsea to have faced their biggest hurdle in title-favourites City, Arsenal must now face Liverpool on Saturday and still have Manchester United to come.

The Frenchman also admitted that the rest of the season will be a battle for the title and that every game will pose a challenge.

“This is the period - January, February, March - where every game is a battle for everybody because everybody fights for something,” added Wenger.
