High flying Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has not written Manchester United out of the Premier League title race, according to Arsenal.com.
He refuses to believe it's now a three-horse race between his side, Chelsea and Manchester City.
Manchester United slumped to eighth position in the league table, a place where no one would expect them to be at this stage of the season, and are currently nine points behind their fierce title rivals.
Arsenal continued their brilliant form this weekend with a 3-0 win over Cardiff City while United drew with Arsenal's north London rivals Tottenham 2-2 and were disappointed to not get the three points they required so much to keep them in the title race.
Some bookmakers have even gone as far as offering odds of 12/1 for United to retain their title, but Wenger has refused to rule the Champions out of the race.
“I wouldn’t rule some other teams out like Man United,” Wenger said. “It’s a bit early to make any prediction on the championship. What is more at stake for us is the consistency that we have shown until now.
“We want to transfer that in the next games that are coming up, because it’s a very difficult month we have in front of us. If we can maintain the quality in our game, the concentration and the solidarity level, then we have a good chance.
“The bookies have an opinion that you can understand because they just look at the table.”
Arsenal welcome Hull City who defeated Liverpool 3-1 in their last match and will be coming to the Emirates in high spirits. Meanwhile Manchester United host David Moyes' former club Everton who smashed Stoke City 4-0 earlier and have just lost one match this season till now.
Are United still title favourites?
