Wenger: We Threw Away The Title

Arsenal have blown a gilt-edged opportunity to win the Premier League this season, according to their frustrated manager.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger felt his side had a “fantastic opportunity” to win the league, but at the very least they will finish the season in fourth place.

They are currently seven points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur in sixth, tie on points with Liverpool and West Brom.

And even though Arsenal find themselves 22 points behind league leaders Manchester United and essentially out of the title race, Wenger does not believe the Red Devils or their title rivals, Manchester City, are “untouchable.”

"I saw Tottenham against Manchester United and you think the difference between us and Manchester United when you see them play. It was a fantastic opportunity this season,” Wenger said.

“To catch Manchester United now is out of sight at the moment. We have to get closer to the people in front of us first before we can think that. Man United is far but there is no untouchable team in the country at the moment. That is for sure."

Wenger insists that Arsenal are in little danger of missing out on qualification for next season’s Uefa Champions League, even though their next league games against West Ham, Liverpool and Stoke are not the simplest of fixtures.

"It should not be difficult but it will be tough ... tougher than before,” Wenger said of Arsenal’s top-four chances.

“It has been always tough but you have plenty of candidates. Tottenham, Everton who are fighting in there as well but I think we can do and that we will do it. "
