thumbnail Hello,

The French tactician admits the title race is far from concluded, but feels that the Red Devils' game in hand gives them a great advantage...

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger thinks that Manchester United still hold all the aces in the race for the Premier League title, despite spurning the chance to move ten points clear of the chasing pack at the weekend, when Liverpool came calling at Old Trafford.

Rafa Benitez's side gave the Red Devils an absolute mauling, running out 4-1 winners to close the gap at the top of the table to just four points.

The Gunners boss has had his say on the weekend's events, and whilst he believes that either one of the top three clubs could yet win the Premier League this season, he feels the balance is still in United's favour.

"There are two things I'd like to say. Firstly, congratulations to Liverpool for winning with an emphatic score, but I think... it is a very flattering score," Wenger is quoted as saying in The Independent.

"For big spells in the game, Manchester United dominated but they made mistakes on the day that usually they don't do. Some players looked a bit mentally tired.

"It opens up the race for the title, even though I still believe Manchester United are in a strong position with the game in hand."
