Arsene Wenger: ‘Premier League title race is far from over’…
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that the Premier League title race is far from over after his side slipped further behind Leicester City at the weekend.
The Gunners held North London rivals and fellow title hopefuls Tottenham Hotspur to a 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane on Saturday despite being forced to play the majority of the second half with just 10 men.
However, it was a third consecutive league game without a win for Arsenal, and Leicester’s victory over Watford later in the day saw the Foxes climb eight points clear of Wenger’s side.
“We will not give up the Premier League, we will fight until the end,” Wenger told reporters.
“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. The Premier League is far from being over.”
Arsenal will turn their attention to the FA Cup this week when they take on Hull City in a fifth-round replay on Tuesday night.
