Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has insisted that the Gunners can still win the Barclays Premier League, despite losing two points in a dramatic 1-1 draw against Liverpool at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
Wenger did admit that the title race is out of Arsenal hands but insisted that the hope to win the title is still alive.
Wenger told reporters, “We will have to give everything until the last game of the season. I don't know if it's our year or not. We have been badly done in our last three home games. It's a period when we have not had the biggest luck, that's for sure”.
“We have to win the next game now. The hope is always there but to keep the hope alive we have to win our games. We are on a 15-game unbeaten run but recently have not taken enough points”, added Arsenal manager.
