Arsene Wenger has declared that Arsenal’s their title chances are over ahead of Sunday’s clash with Manchester United.
While the French tactician admits he will look to bring in some fresh, and most likely experienced, faces ahead of next season, the Arsenal manager remains confident his young squad are heading in the right direction.
Wenger said : “There are some things when the team has lost a little bit of confidence, is a bit more nervous, is in a more difficult patch, that you pay for, but you do not necessary pay for every year,”.
“We had a blow on Sunday with a last-minute goal and it is vital for us to show that we have some mental qualities and finish with a very strong fighting spirit.
“Manchester United are now in a very strong position, but we have to fight until the end of the last second of the championship.
“The title is very unlikely for us now – let’s not hide the truth – but the pride of our group is to first of all finish in the Champions League places.
“We have to look back and we have to look in front because even if there is a minimal chance, we have to fight for it.”
