Wenger Writes off Arsenal Title Hopes

MOST COMMENTED

Arsene Wenger admitted that he is more concerned with a top four finish than wining the Premier League title after the Gunners slumped to a 2-2 draw at home to Swansea City thanks to a 90th-minute own goal from Mathieu Flamini. The point left Arsenal six points adrift of league leader Chelsea but, perhaps more importantly, the Gunners are just six points clear of fifth-place Everton, which won 3-0 at Newcastle and still has a game in hand.

"The title is not our biggest worry at the moment," Wenger said. "We just have to try to be realistic and we have to come back in the next game. We have to look behind us. Of course we also have to look in front of us but as well behind us. Everton won [at Newcastle United] so we have, of course, to focus. It will be open until the end. We can still have surprises. He added: "[Manchester City] and Chelsea are the favorites for the title. We don't have too much room to come back into it. We have to get some players back. It's difficult to fight with half the team out."

Indeed, Arsenal has once again been decimated by injuries at a crucial point in the season. While Theo Walcott has been lost for the rest of the season, Aaron Ramsey, Laurent Koscielny, Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil are not "close to coming back", the Frenchman noted.

    This is, of course, only news to AW. Arsenal fans could have written this after the close of the January transfer window. Look at the Arsenal bench. Then look at the Chelsea and Man City benches. This is not rocket surgery, but AW continues to make hard work of this every year.
