Wenger Insists Arsenal Still In EPL Title Race, Praises “Creative” Iwobi

Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal are still very much in the Premier League title race despite being eight points behind leaders Leicester City.

The Gunners halted a run of three straight losses following their 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday's North London derby.


The draw didn't do either teams any good as Leicester went on to beat Watford 1-0 at Vicarage Road.

Speaking ahead of Tuesday's FA Cup replay against Hull City, Wenger posited that the winner of the EPL is undecided yet.

“I made 10 changes in the first (FA Cup) game. I played a team with a good chance to qualify," Wenger said.
“I have the same respect and same idea for every player in my squad.

“The championship is far from over. We have beaten Leicester twice. People have to look at the other teams.

“We will not give up in the championship. We will fight until the end.”

The Arsenal manager said he will have to rotate his squad for the Hull clash, while praising Alex Iwobi for the Nigerian youngster's overall performance for the team.

“I will have to make [changes]. I’m not concerned by replacing one player for another.

“I have to rotate a bit and keep the balance in the team.”

“We lose Coquelin of course.

“Everybody else looks medically available.

“I have to see how everyone has recovered today. We should have the same squad from Tottenham plus Iwobi.

“He’s a creative player who has a high work rate and team spirit.

“Overall he’s a player who develops very well. He has a big passion for the game.

“He can score, he can play on the flanks or through the middle.”

On being the longest-serving coach in Europe, Wenger said: “I feel privileged on the other hand I work seven days a week with full commitment.

“I have always the same pressure. It’s the pressure I apply to myself.

“You have more opinions than 20 years ago but the only pressure that matters come from yourself.

“I try my best to leave this club in the best shape.”

He also advised that technology for the offside rule should be introduce.

“The next step has to be the offside, treated like goal line technology.

“The offside can be treated very well and in a scientific way.”
