Wenger still not contemplating title challenge

Arsenal cemented second place in the Premier League standings for another week after picking up a well deserved 1-0 win on the road against Burnley today, and as a result also reduced Chelsea’s lead over the Gunners to just 4 points.

Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger though isn’t looking too far ahead just yet and continued to play it cool about a title challenge considering that the Blues still have two games in hand over the Gunners.

Wenger shared in his post match interview today, “I don’t think that our game against Chelsea will decide the Premier League title, they have two games in hand, but we have to just to keep going. We have promised ourselves to do as well as we can until the end and then we will see where we stand.”

While Wenger might publicly still consider the title race beyond him, there is little doubt that Arsenal fans will watch tomorrow’s West London derby with great interest, hoping that Queens Park Rangers can do them a favour tomorrow and take some points off Chelsea, who are likely to be without star striker Diego Costa for the game.
