Wenger refuses to concede title

Arsene Wenger has refused to concede the Premier League title so early, targeting a top-four place as a minimum requirement of Arsenal's season.

The Gunners sit three points shy of a Champions League qualification spot having won seven of their last eight games in all competitions as they look to continue their recovery with a win against Chelsea on Saturday.

Seemingly unstoppable striker Robin van Persie scored a brace to help sink Stoke last Sunday in a 3-1 victory as they moved up to seventh place, 12 points behind leaders Manchester City.

Wenger underlined the importance of his team's fighting spirit in chasing the title believing it would be wrong to right off any team after so few games.

"Of course at the moment we are far from Manchester City - 12 points - so today we have to get back to a shorter distance before we can say we will fight for the title," said Wenger.

"What is important for us is to first get back in a fighting position closer to the top.

"Who would write off the title after nine games? People who do that have nothing to do in this job if you don't believe that you have a chance.

"But we have to be realistic at the moment; we are not in contention for that.

"However there are only nine games played so what is important is to fight, to get in there.

"No team has won the championship after nine games. It is impossible, no matter how much you know football, to predict who will win the league after nine games."

Tell me this,

How does he look at his squad, finances, the league table and come to the evaluation that he could potentially win the league this year.

Lets be honest, last time Arsenal got close to winning the league they lost it in December.

There not even within reaching distance and we're in November
