Wenger - December Is Crucial
Le Boss says that the true title contenders will emerge in the next 3-4 weeks. Many people had already written Arsenal out of the title race when we drew our opening 2 games and lost our third. An amazing vein of form followed, including a victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford. The Young Guns gave us all an insight in to what we can expect in the future and we were all of a sudden back in the title race.
A 1-1 draw at home with Everton and a 0-1 loss away to West Ham and we were all of a sudden out of the title race again. Now, after a 3-0 thumping of Liverpool at home we are once again back in the title race.
The next month sees Chelsea travel to Manchester United and Arsenal visit the blue half of Fulham. Le Boss says that the title contenders will emerge from this, although he is still refusing to write off Liverpool: "At the moment Manchester United have a particular advantage.
"But Chelsea have had some impressive scores recently. With the goal difference between the teams it is very tight and it is very, very early as well.
"In a few weeks we will know more. Chelsea play Manchester United and afterwards we play against Chelsea.
"There are Champions League games in between as well. Once that little marathon is over, the ones who survive this period will be No 1."
Well monsieur Wenger, lets get our skates on and do to Chelsea what we have done to United and Liverpool.
