Wenger talks up Arsenal’s title chances after Everton win

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has stated that his side are in the title race after they beat Everton 2-0 at Goodison Park on Saturday.

The Gunners have endured a poor run of domestic form of late but got a much-needed three points on Merseyside against a lacklustre Toffees yesterday.

Goals from Alex Iwobi and Danny Welbeck secured victory for the visitors, who will hope to reel in division leaders Leicester City with more positive results.

Wenger stated that his side are doing everything they can to be crowned English champions for the first time since 2004.

“I would not consider us out. Mathematically, we have a chance,” he told the Arsenal website.

We also have a game in hand at home. We are not flavour of the week, but if we don’t believe, no one will do it for us.

“Even if the environment is sceptical, we have to do our best in every single game. We have to be humble and fight in every game like we did today.

“Then we never know. We need some performances on our side, so let’s focus on that, but some good results from other sides, we cannot help that.”

Leicester beat Crystal Palace 1-0 at Selhurst Park which has opened up an eight-point lead at the top of the table with seven games remaining.

Second placed Tottenham host Bournemouth at White Hart Lane later today and can close the gap to five points.

Arsenal have been eliminated from the FA Cup and the Champions League, with the title their only remaining chance of silverware.
