Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has refused to rule Manchester United out of the title race, according to Arsenal.com.
Wenger’s side currently sit nine points ahead of Moyes’s men, after United responded to Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Cardiff on Saturday, by drawing 2-2 with Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
Some bookmakers have even gone as far as offering odds of 12/1 for United to retain their title, but Wenger has refused to rule the Champions out of the race.
“I wouldn’t rule some other teams out like Man United,” Wenger said. “It’s a bit early to make any prediction on the championship. What is more at stake for us is the consistency that we have shown until now.
“We want to transfer that in the next games that are coming up, because it’s a very difficult month we have in front of us. If we can maintain the quality in our game, the concentration and the solidarity level, then we have a good chance.
“The bookies have an opinion that you can understand because they just look at the table.”
Arsenal are set to welcome Hull City to the Emirates tomorrow night, whilst Manchester United take on Everton at Old Trafford.
