Soccer – Wenger: Title race still on

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has refused to buy into talk that the race for the Premier League title is all but over already, with unbeaten Manchester City eight points clear of the chasing pack. The Citizens have dropped just two points from their 13 league games played so far this season, a run of form which sees them well clear of their nearest challengers, neighbours United. Reigning champions Chelsea are three points further back in third place, with the Gunners currently rounding out the top four. However, Frenchman Wenger, whose side are 12 points adrift of the Citizens, said when asked if the title race was already over: "No, I don't think so. "It is too early to say that. I feel that every team has its vulnerabilities, even Manchester City. They've had a good start but it is too early. We are only in November." The Gunners can be backed at 1/1 with bet365 to finish in the top four in the Premier League this season.
