Wenger: Arsenal not in the title race

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has stated that he does not feel his side are in the title race, despite winning 1-0 away to Burnley yesterday.

Aaron Ramsey’s first-half strike was enough to see the North London outfit leave Turf Moor with three points, making it eight straight victories in a row for the Gunners.

Arsenal’s next league game sees them host leaders Chelsea, with hopes that they can reduce the deficit at the top of the table.

Although the Emirates Stadium outfit are the form team in the English top flight currently, Wenger has stated that victory over the Blues would not change the destination of the Premier League trophy.

“I don’t think our game against Chelsea will decide the title – they have two games in hand,” the BBC quote the French coach as saying.

“We still need a perfect run and a non-perfect run from them.”

Arsenal’s win reduces the gap between the sides to four points, with Jose Mourinho’s men set to take on QPR later today.

The West London side also have a second game in hand, which is against bottom side Leicester and as such the Stamford Bridge outfit are overwhelming favourites to be crowned English champions come May.
