Arsene Wenger remains coy about his team’s chances of winning the Premier League title since his team still have tough matches against the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, and Chelsea.
The tough run of fixtures will start with the home match against the Merseyside outfit. After having won the last seven matches in the league, Wenger will be feeling relatively confident about his team’s chances of performing well. Unlike in the last few seasons, Arsenal have done well in the big matches this season. Hence, it would be very difficult to write them off against Liverpool.
Only a few months ago, the possibility of title success seemed relatively difficult. A combination of Chelsea and Manchester City dropping a lot of points in February and March combined with Arsenal’s good run of form during these months have helped their case. Traditionally, Arsenal have enjoyed a lot of form going into the business end of the season. A repeat of the same could see them not only in contention for a second spot, but possibly for the title. Wenger says that there are still a lot of permutations and combinations still left in the season and he does not want to calculate every single aspect of it.
“Of course I get nervous before the games because football is not mathematics.In maths every day you know that one plus one is two. In football, one player plus one player doesn’t always add up to two players.I’ve asked people many times why they think that football, that didn’t even exist in 1850, is so popular. I think there are two main reasons. The first one is that it’s completely unpredictable. More so than any other sport. The second reason is that everybody has a chance to play this sport, no matter how small or tall,” said Wenger.
