Wenger Not Impressed By Chelsea’s Winning Run: Makes A Big Claim On Their Title Credentials
Chelsea might have won 9 games in a row and have been tipped by many to win their second Premier League title in three years but Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has said that Antonio Conte’s men are still not the favourites for the title. While admitting that the Blues are candidates to win the Premier League, the Frenchman insisted that no team has earned the right to be called favourites.
Antonio Conte’s men are currently leading the league with 37 points after 15 games, three points clear of Arsenal. With seven points separating the first-placed Chelsea and fourth-placed Manchester City, Wenger believes that there is still a long way to go before the title is decided.
The Arsenal boss said that the title race is very much open and consistency will play a vital role in determining the champions.
Speaking ahead of his side’s trip to the Goodison Park, Wenger said:“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.”
