Arsène Wenger has not given up on winning the Premiership title.

Arsenal took a valuable draw away from Stamford Bridge on Sunday but are still 18 points adrift of leaders Manchester United, albeit with a game in hand.

Afterwards the manager re-iterated his argument that, although Arsenal are well off the pace, he believes if they concentrate on their own game they can still contest England's top honour.

"I do not look at Chelsea or Manchester United," he said. "I look at my team and we want to win the title.

"We have won at Manchester United, we have beaten Liverpool and we came close to winning here at Chelsea. That tells you there is a big potential in this side.

"There is a big stride in my side to be top. I have still not given up on [catching] Manchester United as well but at the moment I admit it looks a bit pretentious.

"Still if you ask me who I want to be champions I can give you a straight answer - Arsenal."
