Wenger on title “Mathematically we are still in there, but it is not in our hands.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was pleased to see his side finally show some character after they fought back from a goal down to draw 1-1 with Manchester City.
Arsenal who were hammered 6-0 at Chelsea to ruin Arsene Wenger’s 1,000th match last weekend responded positively against another top-four rival.
Arsene Wenger was pleased with the performance of his team.
“We were a bit nervy at the start, insecure in our attitude by our last two results, but when even we when we were 1-0 down you could see the team was ready for a fight,” said the Arsenal manager, whose side had conceded a last-minute own goal to draw 2-2 at home against Swansea on Tuesday night.
“We controlled the second half, we controlled the first 20 minutes and overall in the first half maybe they had another chance, in the second half we had a second chance.
“We could have won it in the second half, but overall it was a game of quality between two good teams and the game was played with a great spirit on both sides.”
Arsenal remain in fourth place, five points behind Chelsea.
Wenger said: “Chelsea lost today at Crystal Palace, so that means all of us have to be careful and consistent.
“It just shows that we have absolutely to fight until the end of the season because everybody can beat everybody.
“Mathematically we are still in there, but it is not in our hands.
“We have to look above us and behind us as well, because behind us they are coming as well.”
What do you think of the Boss’s assessment.
