Wenger’s response when asked on Premier League points target

Arsenal are fighting for the Premier League title.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he is not focusing on a specific points target this season as he looks to pick up as many wins as possible between now and the end of the season, the club’s official site report.

The Gunners currently occupy third place in the Premier League, two points behind league leaders Leicester City heading in to the business end of the campaign.

When asked how many points he believes Arsenal will need to win the title, Wenger admits he is unsure and instead doesn’t want to put a limit on his side’s potential outcome.

“How many points that will be needed [to win the title]? We don’t know. Let’s not set any limit on the number of points we can get,” Wenger explained.

“We have put ourselves in a strong position again. We want to take advantage of that and continue our good run in the Premier League.”

Arsene Wenger’s men currently sit on 51 points from 26 matches, two points adrift of Leicester and also behind North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur on goal difference.

The Gunners arguably have the more difficult run-in of the three, having to face Manchester United, Spurs, Everton, West Ham United and Manchester City on their travels between now and May.

In what has been a unique season, the eventual champions may not even break the 80-point mark which would be a record low for the Premier League’s top spot this side of the millennium.

Arsenal face United at Old Trafford this weekend in a game they can’t afford to lose.
