Wenger believes Arsenal still has a shot at the title

Wenger Says it’s too Early for Man City to Celebrate

While it may be a forgone conclusion to some, Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger says it’s far too premature to assume that his side can only hope to finish in second place this season. Currently Arsenal are fourth, a full 12 points behind the log leaders and 7 points adrift from second place, Manchester United. There is still time though. If there is one thing we can count on it’s that things can change at any given time.
If you are playing mobile pokies daily, at some point you are going to win. When and how much is a different story. Pep Guardiola's Man City squad have won 12 of their games and drawn just one. That doesn’t mean things can’t change. According to Wenger, every team has its vulnerabilities, including Man City. Speaking to the press, Wenger said that City had a good start to the season but it is still too early to know where everyone will end up. He reiterated the fact that we are currently in November and a championship is only won in May.

Wenger went on to explain that while the teams may seem far apart now, the only way his side can keep their hopes alive is to win games, which is why it remains his one and only focus. Wednesday’s game against Huddersfield is a case in point. We must remember, this was a team that pushed Manchester City to their limits before finally conceding a late goal to lose 2-1, and they certainly are not ready to claim an underdog label just yet.

Patience and Hard Work is the Key

Wenger believes that they didn’t deserve to lose to City. He said that they have played a total of 46 games in the Championship and are always ready for a challenge. Any team that comes up in the first season has a fighting spirit that makes them a dangerous matchup for just about anyone in the premier league. Meanwhile, Arsenal will make a bid for their third consecutive Premier League win playing at home.

The Gunners home record is impressive this season with 11 home-game wins in a row, a run that has not been seen since 2005. Wenger believes it is all down to solid defence and a bit of patience. He said that as a cohesive unit, Arsenal can turn things around. With the home supporters behind them, the team can extend their winning streak and rack up the points needed. It remains to be seen if Man City can carry on with their impressive performance in the new year.
