The Gunners manager refuses to write the Red Devils off.
Despite an eight point gap between the two sides, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists holders Manchester United are still Premier League titles contenders.
United drew at home to Southampton on Saturday whilst the Gunners romped to a 4-1 win over Norwich City, to leave Wenger’s men top of the table with 19 points.
The Red Devils meanwhile languish in eighth having won just three of their opening eight matches in the league.
Yet Wenger is adamant that the English champions should not be written off just yet.
“It’s too early,” the Frenchman told the club’s website.
“Eight points starts to be a little gap but they [Man United] are not out of the title race. And we are only two points in front of all the others.
“You cannot rule Man United out today. They have big players, big experience and they are a big club.
“It’s three games basically [to make up the gap] – that is very quick in our league.”
The north London side have been in stunning form so far in 2013/14 and since an opening day defeat to Aston Villa in the league, have dropped just two points in the English top flight.
Wenger’s team also have a 100% record in the Champions League with wins over Marseille and Napoli and advanced from the League Cup via a penalties victory over West Bromwich Albion.
With stars such as Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere in brilliant form, many have tipped Arsenal to win their first piece of silverware in over eight years.
