Wenger: We can only master our own performances

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that as far as the chances of his side winning the Premier League title this season are concerned, they can only try to ‘master their own performances’, whilst hoping that the target is achievable.

The Frenchman was quoted telling reporters ahead of his side’s Premier League fixture against Liverpool: “What is mathematically possible you have to try to achieve but that’s not all down to us. We can only master our own performances.”

The Gunners are currently 3rd in the standings, with 60 points from 30 games, 7 points behind league leaders Chelsea, who have a game in hand. Additionally, the north Londoners are also facing competition from Manchester United and Man City, with the sides being on 59 and 61 points respectively.

Talking about his team’s next match in the league, the Frenchman said that he has great respect for the Merseyside giants. However, he added that he is focussed on the match and guiding his side to producing the kind of performances that they have shown recently.

Saturday’s match will also involve the Reds being without their captain Steven Gerrard, who was sent off in their last game against Manchester United. And Wenger said about the veteran: “When Liverpool were in trouble everyone looked towards him and nine times out of 10 he got them out of it.”
