Gunners still in title race

Published Add your comment

Defiant Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger maintains his team will "still have our say" in the destiny of the Barclays Premier League title.

The Gunners, who were handed a nightmare Champions League last-16 draw against Barcelona on Friday, were knocked off top spot following their 1-0 defeat at title rivals Manchester United on Monday night.

But Wenger said: "We are disappointed because we lost at Manchester United, but we have an opportunity to go back to winning habits at home (against Stoke on Saturday). What is positive is if you look overall at our situation, we are still in a strong position because we still play Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City at home, Liverpool as well. More than ever, we will still have our say in this league."

Wenger, though, accepts the fact either Chelsea or Manchester United are set to drop points when they meet at Stamford Bridge on Sunday will be meaningless if his team do not produce the required result against Stoke.

"What I want to see is us winning the game on Saturday and then to watch the game on Sunday in a relaxed way," he said.

"What is important is we win our games.

"You cannot always speculate on the results of others - you only have a chance to do well in the league if you win your own games."
