Arsene Wenger is not ready to give up on winning the EPL title, saying a slip up is possible for Leicester.
Arsenal are 11 points behind league leaders, Leicester City, who are five points clear of second placed Tottenham.
Wenger’s men face Watford this weekend, with Leicester taking on Southampton.
And Wenger hopes to put pressure on a Leicester squad that has little collective experience of competing at the top of the table.
“Leicester at the moment are in a very strong position, but they can still lose it,” Wenger told a news conference.
“But we have to perform. Our job is to perform until the last day of the season, so let’s perform. The target is to win our remaining [eight] games. Let’s be pragmatic. It starts on Saturday.
“Finishing on 79 points could be enough, but it depends on the results of Leicester. Nobody knows how they will respond in their last games.
“I don’t know how many teams are still in the title race. Everybody doubts Arsenal’s chances, so for the teams behind us it’s even more difficult.
“Seasons like this could be more of a norm because all English clubs have fantastic financial potential.”
