Arsène Wenger insists that Liverpool still have a realistic chance of winning the Premier League title.

Rafa Benitez's side snatched a stoppage-time equaliser at Anfield on Tuesday night to force a 4-4 draw after Andrey Arshavin's quartet looked like sealing an incredible win for Arsenal. The result sent Liverpool to the top of the table on goal difference but Manchester United now have two games in hand. The first of those takes place tonight when Portsmouth visit Old Trafford.

The champions are now heavy odds-on to retain their crown but Wenger believes that Liverpool are still in with a shout.

"They are still in it," said the Frenchman.

"It depends how Man United will respond on Wednesday night as well. They have got two home games and it depends how they do in them."
