The race for the 2016/17 English Premier League title is still very much open, Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger declared today.
Wenger also suggests that Chelsea who are 3 points above Arsenal at the very top of the EPL table are not super contenders for the annual trophy.
Speaking in a press conference ahead of his side’s Tuesday clash with Everton, Wenger was quoted saying,
“What I believe is they [Chelsea] will be one of the candidates.
“They are of course one of the teams doing extremely well, but there is no super favourite in there at the moment.
“They will have to maintain that like everybody else at the top. When you look at the league it is down to consistency.
“It is very open, very interesting. Every time a team is the favourites to win, they struggle.
“When you look at the teams around us, you can see the margin of difference between the teams has shrunk a lot.
“The way you respond in every game is absolutely vital. It’s a very important period where everybody has to be absolutely focused on our results and the way we want to play.”
