SHOCKING STATEMENT – Wenger Tells Media His Favorite Candidates to Win EPL This Year

With Arsenal ending 2015 as league leaders and Leicester right behind them at second, Arsene Wenger believes the it is too soon to decide title winners. The Frenchman hasn’t ruled out Manchester City and went on to say that Manchester United are also very much in the race.

‘We can have great solidarity in every single game and after that we have a chance,’ Wenger told ‘You cannot rule us out after 19 games. We have chance and we want to fight for it. Everybody wants to predict who will win it at halfway but even for the most intelligent people [that is] impossible.

‘Mathematically you cannot rule out anyone down to Manchester United. Can Liverpool still fight for it? I don’t know. We have a difficult programme and we have to focus on ourselves more than we have to look at who will be our main threat. We have to focus on our performances.’

Manchester United are currently 6th in the league with 30 points, nine less than leaders Arsenal. United will face Swansea and Southampton at home, and Newcastle and Liverpool away, in January. The Red Devils haven’t won a single game in their last fixtures of the Premier League. However, Wenger has stated that they aren’t out of the race. He has also picked Manchester City as favourites to win the league even though his team managed to defeat them 2-1 at the Emirates.

‘City are the favourites still because they might have the most glamorous potential and they are not far behind,’ Wenger added. ‘After that, Tottenham are not far behind and Leicester are still there after 19 games. You have to respect that and they also have no European competition. The gap is not big enough, nine points is not big enough to say that anyone is out of it.’
Second position holders Leicester lost their hold on first position after they failed to secure a win against Manchester City with 0-0 draw. Even though they are now on equal points with Arsenal, the London clubs stays at the top through goal difference.
