Arsene Wenger has insisted that the Premier League is far from over and that Arsenal will continue to fight.
In the boss’ press conference ahead of our FA Cup replay against Hull, he was once again asked about our title chances.
We’re now eight points behind Leicester at the top of the table and the odds aren’t exactly in our favour but Wenger was keen to point out that it’s not over yet.
“The Premier League is far from being over,” the Frenchman told the press.
“Just to remind you, we have beaten Leicester twice so we have done our job against them. People have to look at other teams more, not just us on that front. We will not give up the Premier League, we will fight until the end.
“We had a performance [at Tottenham] where we took only one point and the three were possible. [But] we have shown the mental response that everyone wanted from us.”
We have beat Leicester twice – something no other team has been able to do this season. However, unfortunately, we don’t get extra points for beating them, which means despite our victories we’re still quite some way behind.
The League is no longer in our hands. We have to rely on both Spurs and the Foxes to drop points but there are 10 games left. It’s improbable but not impossible. All we can do is win in our remaining Premier League fixtures and hope for the best.
