Wenger refuses to give up on title race

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger remains determined to catch Manchester City, despite falling 15 points behind the Premier League leaders.

The Gunners lost 3-1 to second-placed Manchester United on Saturday and were beaten by the same scoreline last month against City. Arsenal have consequently dropped to fifth position in the standings.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that the title race is probably over for Spurs, who are 18 points adrift of the leaders, but Wenger remains bullish until it's mathematically impossible to win.

"I am not Pochettino, I am Arsene Wenger," the Frenchman told UK newspapers, according to FourFourTwo.

"I am here to fight as long as I can, as long as mathematically it's possible you have to fight, you cannot give any other message out."

"I believe the game, it has to make us angry and even more determined," he told the press after the defeat to United.

"If I am a player, and I think with what we produced, we have a huge potential, and we lose the game, we cannot accept that.

"That's what you want, the players have produced a quality performance."
