Arsenal boss Arsène Wenger refuses to rule out Arsenal in the Premier League title race despite Saturday’s loss to Manchester United. This comes just days after Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino ruled his side out of contention after a disappointing draw against Watford.

The Gunners are 15 points behind leaders Manchester City after five defeats in their first 15 games. Wenger’s side also find themselves three points ahead of their North London rivals.

I am not Pochettino, I am Arsène Wenger,” the Frenchman added.

I am here to fight as long as I can. As long as mathematically it’s possible you have to fight. You cannot give any other message out.

The Arsenal boss says that his side’s performance on Saturday against Manchester United has revived belief within his squad. “I believe from the game, it has to make us angry and even more determined. If I am a player, and I think with what we produced, we have a huge potential, and we lose the game. We cannot accept that.”

That’s what you want, the players have produced a quality performance. What makes you angry is that you produce that performance and in the end, you have nothing to show for it. That’s very difficult to accept.

Wenger was upbeat over the positive reaction from the Emirates Stadium crowd to Arsenal’s performance on Saturday. “The crowd sees as well that the team produced what is expecte of them,” he added.

“The crowd was outstanding. And the team was outstanding. But, we were not efficient. I cannot deny that. They have scored three, we have scored one.”
