Wenger refusing to give up on Arsenal's Premier League title hopes

Arsene Wenger In Emirates Press Conference 2

Talking ahead of the Gunners' match with Reading in the FA Cup this weekend, the 65-year-old still hoped to catch Chelsea.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been talking to Sky Sports and other media services of his side's Premier League title ambitions ahead of their FA Cup semi-final on Saturday, and he has not yet given up hope of making up the current seven point gap.

While admitting that it would be tough to catch Jose Mourinho's side, and that Chelsea would have to lose to Manchester United on Saturday to stop the Blues from increasing their lead to ten points, the former Monaco boss didn't sound prepared to throw in the towel just yet.

“Mathematically, yes,” Wenger said when asked if Arsenal could still win the Premier League. “But we have to win our games and we want to win our games, that is all we can do.”

Arsenal are on a phenomenal run in the Premier League, and haven't lost since the 2-1 defeat away to Tottenham on February 7.

Despite a disappointing Champions League exit to Monaco, the Gunners have also been going strong in the cup competitions, and they are set to face Championship side Reading in the FA Cup semi-finals this weekend.

Wenger ended Arsenal's 9-year trophy drought last season when the club won 3-2 against Hull City at Wembley, and the Frenchman and his players will be eager to make it past the Royals, before defending their trophy against either Aston Villa or Liverpool at the end of May.
