Wenger: Title race is wide open

BY foxsports • December 15, 2009

The French tactician has seen his Arsenal side close to within six points of Premier League leaders Chelsea - with a game in hand. Wenger has huge confidence his side can win their first title since 2005, but also thinks up to eight clubs could yet win the league. "Nobody looks like they will run away with it early this season," he told Sky Sports News. "Instead of four teams you have six, seven or eight teams who can create a surprise any weekend and that is why, certainly since I have been here, it is the most open it has ever been." Wenger is happy with how his side have battled back into contention in recent weeks. "I am deeply convinced since the beginning of the season [we could win the title]," he said. "I said that after the Chelsea game, it is down to how well we improve as a group and how we are ready for a fight in every game and how much we can improve from September to May. "I think the message we have given out is that we are ready for a fight and haven't given up. "Things change very quickly, what looks for definite in this league is just short term as no situation is established, two weeks ago Chelsea were running away with it and now it has changed."
