The title race is NOT over, according to Arsène Wenger.

Manchester United have opened up a seven-point gap at the top of the table after the latest round of Premier League fixtures. The champions beat Blackburn 2-1 on Saturday – their 10th successive Premier League victory – while closest rivals Liverpool could only draw 1-1 with Manchester City.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s team are odds-on to retain their crown while Paddy Power, Arsenal’s official online bookmaker, have already paid out on United completing a domestic clean sweep. Wenger is not so sure that the title race is a foregone conclusion.

“It's not yet over because none of the teams are really convincing with the way they play,” said the Frenchman at his pre-match press conference.

“Mathematically it is not over and I feel Man United could have dropped points easily against Blackburn on Saturday.

“For me no-one is dominating this championship in the way they play.”
