Arsène Wenger doesn't mind who lands the title - as long as the best team wins.

Arsenal will have a significant say in the destiny of the Premier League trophy as they take on each of the top three before the end of the season, starting with tonight's trip to Anfield to face Liverpool. Rafa Benitez's team are a point adrift of leaders Manchester United and have played a game more than the champions so they desperately need to beat Arsenal to keep up the pressure on Sir Alex Ferguson's team.

You might think that Wenger would prefer Liverpool to claim their first top-flight crown for 19 years - after all, Man United have been Arsenal's biggest rivals in the intervening years - but the Frenchman has no preference.

"I want the title to be decided and won by the team who deserves it most," he insists.

"I feel at the moment, it's difficult to say... the difference I must say at the moment has been done by Man United at home, because they have won 13 home games and Liverpool nine.

"Liverpool has done much better away from home than Man United and Man United has done better at home."
