Wenger: We can still win Premier League title

Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal can win the Premier League title if they win the remaining five games, even though they currently trail Manchester United by six points.

While the latest transfer rumours suggest that Wenger could be out of the job at the end of the season, the Frenchman is doing his best to end the season on a high.

After Chelsea keeper Petr Cech claimed that Arsenal were out of the title race following recent slip-ups, the French manager moved to say that he still believes the Gunners can win the Premier League title.

“I’m quite open to everything, but mathematically – and I was not too bad in maths – it’s difficult to understand the logic of his statement,” Wenger was quoted as saying.

“Mathematically, I can’t see a difference given they have the same number of points. We have to win all our games, add a winning mentality to the drawing mentality.

“Frankly, we were 1-0 up in the 97th minutes against Liverpool, so it’s difficult to say you can predict what would happen in the 98th minute. You can never legislate as to what will happen. You can just produce excellent performances.

Even though Arsenal’s recent slip-ups have filled Premier League news headlines during the last few weeks, the Frenchman believes his side can win the remaining five games and ultimately lift the Premiership title.

“I have no doubt we can win our five games. We have a good basis because we are consistent. We have played 16 games without losing. What I feel is most important is to keep the belief and win.

“If we win our five games, we’ll win the championship. I’m convinced. But the target is to win the next one for now. This championship will go to the most solid team mentally, not necessarily to anybody else.

“I believe that the mental part, the belief, is the most important thing to have now in the last five games. Let’s have that in the next game.”

The Gunners haven’t been as consistent as Wenger claims seeing they have won just one of their last eight games in all competitions, so it is hard to believe they can win five consecutive games in the crucial part of the season.

Even if that somehow happens, Manchester United are highly unlikely to squander the six-point advantage at the top, even if the Red Devils have yet to play Arsenal at the Emirates and Chelsea at Old Trafford.
