The Arsenal boss says it is too early to
declare Jose Mourinho’s side champions, insisting that the six-point gap between the Blues and Manchester City can be bridged
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists the Premier League title race is not over despite Chelsea’s fine start to the season.
Jose Mourinho’s side are currently
unbeaten and have been tipped in some quarters with matching Arsenal’s feat of going the entire campaign without tasting defeat.
Manchester City are just six points behind the Blues, and Wenger says there are a number of teams who will continue to chase the leaders down over the remainder of the season.
“You cannot say the title race is over after
13 or 14 games,” he told reporters. “You also cannot say the six-point gap is not catchable.
“We have not started very well but we
didn’t have the squad together since the start of the season. It was a post-World Cup start typically. We have to fight like mad now to come back as much as possible to show that we can compete in every single game.
“We have fought many times for the title. People always remember who won it but the fight has been very tight for long periods in the last eight or nine years. “We have a big competition in England, we have to accept that. The Premier League level goes always up and this season
Chelsea have started very well. They will be difficult to catch but everybody will fight to come back on them.
