Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says we are still in the Premier League title race, in spite of the difference of eight points between his team and leaders Leicester City. The Gunners have got just a single point in their last three games by playing a 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, whereas they lost the previous two games to Manchester United and Swansea City. They are still three points behind from their second-placed competitors Spurs after Saturday’s draw and they have to play nine more games in this Premier League season.
“We will not surrender the Premier League, we will fight until the end,” said the 66 years old Wenger. “Just to jog your memory, we have defeated Leicester two times in this season so we have completed our task against them. People should have to look at other teams more, not just us on that front. The Premier League season isn’t over,” he added. Arsenal are involved in three tournaments, together with the FA Cup and the Champions League, in spite of the fact that they have a tough competition in the next week after their 2-0 home defeat by Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 game.
Today they are going to visit Hull City for a replay of fifth-round in the FA Cup – a tournament they have won for the past two seasons. Arsene Wenger, who is the manager of Arsenal since last 20 seasons, has been facing criticism due to their current weak performance but he says he is unaffected. “I think that views are views,” said the Frenchman. “I do my job and one day someone will take my place and will take your place. I try to do my best and leave this club in the best form so the person arriving after me will have excellent prospective to work with,” he added.
