After former Man Utd midfielder Paul Scholes claimed that Arsenal were a million miles from the title, manager Arsene Wenger has replied in kind.
“If six points [from the top] is a million miles away, then I don’t know what the translation from a mile into a point is,” the Arsenal manager said. “Everybody has opinions, people who have managed zero games have opinions and we have to accept that. We are in a society where there are thousands of opinions every day, and some go for you and some go against you. You have to live with that.
“We have not given up [on the title], believe me and we can show that on Saturday,” Wenger added. “It is our attitude that will decide that.”
Arsenal tackle a rampant Manchester City side on Saturday afternoon, following the disappointment of conceding a late own goal in a 2-2 draw against Swansea. “We have not given up [on the title], believe me and we can show that on Saturday. It is our attitude that will decide that. Champions keep going when everybody else would give up.”
