Arsène Wenger admits that the gap between Arsenal and the Premier League pacesetters is “big” - but insists the season is not yet over for his side.

Arsenal beat West Bromwich Albion on Saturday to move up to seventh place in the table, but they are still 15 points behind leaders Manchester United.

Wenger accepts that trying to overhaul Sir Alex Ferguson’s side will be difficult, but not impossible.

“The Manchester derby was of a very good level and the draw would maybe have been the fair result,” the Frenchman told Arsenal Player.

“Manchester City came back - they started the game very strongly - but Man United have shown they are clinical up front.

“The rest of the weekend was quite interesting. It shows that if you’re consistent, you will be there at the end of the season. From now on it is important for us to be consistent

“The gap [to the top] is big, but not big enough to think it’s done.”
