Arsene Wenger has shared his views on the title race and believes Chelsea still have a chance.
The blues currently sit 14th on the premier league table but Arsene Wenger has claimed that the defending champions are still in the race to win the title.
Wenger refused to rule out Chelsea from the title race but aimed a subtle-yet-devastating dig at their London rivals.
“Mathematically you cannot rule them out – even the bottom teams are in it,” he said. “It is so difficult. It is so tight and I don’t even look at the league anymore because it is very, very tight.
“Last week we had a bad result against West Brom and so did Manchester City [against Liverpool] so it compacted the whole table. I believe it is a big opportunity for us but many teams can tell you that. We are in a position where you want to be after 13 games but there are 25 to go.
“If there’s five or six to go and we are in the race, of course [we are contenders]. I think we have a chance but it is very early.”
Arsenal are considered by many as genuine title contenders this term but injuries to key players are threatening to derail the gunner’s title challenge.
