Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has played down his side’s chances of clinching their fourth Premier League title, despite the club being the current form team in the top four.
Since the defeat in the north London derby back in February, the Gunners have won seven league matches in a row, and now looked nailed on for a place in next season’s Champions League. They also have a FA Cup semi-final against Reading on the horizon.
Nevertheless, with just seven games to go, they still sit seven points behind Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea, who also have a game in hand over all of their rivals.
With that in mind, the Frenchman has explained that a late push at the title is unlikely to end successfully, but they will continue to try and put the Blues under pressure in case they do slip up, the Daily Mirror report.
“Chelsea have a difficult schedule but so do we. All we can do is master our schedule. What we want is to go as high as we can until the end of the season. Give our best,” he said.
The top two do meet towards the end of the month, and both have to face a rejuvenated Manchester United before the end of the campaign, but perhaps crucially, Mourinho’s men also host Liverpool.
Despite the title seemingly already on its way to Stamford Bridge, success against each other, as well as the teams around them may mean the trophy could yet head for the different destination in London.
