Arsenal boss refusing to give up in title race

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has reiterated his hopes of catching Chelsea this season, whilst admitting that even earning a top our finish is tough.

The Gunners have fallen to 16 points behind the league leaders Chelsea, albeit having played a match less, and more importantly, now trail Liverpool by five, with the Reds having played twice more than us.

Arsene Wenger refused to be drawn on whether he expected to make the top four, but insists the challenge is not going to be easy, whilst keeping his hopes on closing on the Blues at the top of the table.

“It is not down to me to judge that I leave that to you,” Wenger said.

“We want to play in the Champions League next season we have a tough job with six, seven teams fighting for the places.

“It’s strange because we have games cancelled. You don’t play, you play FA Cup. You have no continuity.

“We are in a position where we cannot afford to lose points.

“West Brom is always a difficult game but for us an opportunity to come back close to Chelsea.

“We are in the semi-final of the FA Cup and have an opportunity to do that.

“Success is to take the maximum out of the potential of the team.”

He then seemed to add a swipe at the fans, who have been strongly critical of him and his side this term, saying: “Nothing is good enough anymore so you try to do the best you can.”

Could Chelsea drop enough points for us to claw back to them? Are we worried about our top four slot? Is Wenger’s latest line the biggest hint he could step down this summer?

    Funny when you think you could just win the trophy without Chelski Losing more than 3 matches in their remaining games
    And you on your own part think you could just win the 10 remaining games!

    Please someone let him know that winning PL or Champions League this year could have been enough for us and FA cup with 4th place is not enough!

    If Arsenal wins the title… they’ll be the worst champions the EPL has ever had. Arsenal isn’t playing like champions, not even close

    “We want to play in the Champions League next season we have a tough job with six, seven teams fighting for the places” now isn’t this a clue that next season I’ll still be around this club ruining everyone’s life? he knows he is sticking around, just waiting for a good moment (like winning 2 games in a row) when fans will chant again ‘there is only one Arsene Wenger’

    Our misery won’t last anytime soon, we are stuck with the specialist in failure for some more years
