Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has commented on Chelsea’s stunning 1-0 win over Manchester City on Monday, saying that while the Blues deserved to win, he felt City were not at their best.
“Chelsea looked always dangerous and Man City looked for me a bit jaded,” Wenger told the official Arsenal website,
“They were not as fluent or as strong physically as they were at Tottenham but it could have gone to 1-1, it could have gone 2-0 for Chelsea,”
“At the end of the day, they [City] had 65 per cent possession with 25 shots on goal so sometimes that can be a 1-1 [draw], but I must say Chelsea had opportunities for the 2-0 [win].”
Chelsea moved level on points with City following the win at the Etihad, just two points behind Arsenal at the top of the league.
The Gunners lead the way with 14 games to go, and with Chelsea and City right on their tail, Wenger believes it will all come down to consistency,
“It [the title race] is never as simple as everyone predicts it,”
“I said a long time ago that nobody will be absolutely above [the others]. It will be down to consistency.”
Arsenal travel to Liverpool this Saturday in what will be the first in a number of stern tests for Wenger’s table-toppers as we enter into the business end of the season.
