Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes Premier League rivals Manchester United cannot be ruled out of the title race, reports

The Red Devils have had a poor start to the season and currently sit eight points behind the Gunners, who top the table.

And despite United's most recent setback - a 1-1 draw against Southampton - Wenger has insisted that the current champions are still in the race. 

The Arsenal boss has warned that things can change extremely quickly in England's elite division and and United have the experience to close the gap. 

Speaking to Arsenal's official website, Wenger said: "It's too early," he told the club’s official website.

"Eight points starts to be a little gap but they [United] are not out of the title race. And we are only two points in front of all the others.

"If you have a choice nobody wants to be eight points behind. If you have the choice, you want to be in the race at the top.

“But 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."

Wenger will take his side to Old Trafford in November and will be hoping to inflict more misery on Moyes at United. 

Both Arsenal and United are in action in the Champions League this week as Arsenal host Borussia Dortmund and Moyes' side take on Real Sociedad at the Theatre of Dreams.
