Arsene Wenger refuses to write off Arsenal's chances of winning the Premier League title this season, despite trailing Chelsea by nine points.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has refused to declare his side out of the Premier League title race.

Despite losing just once so far in the campaign, the Gunners are already nine points behind league leaders Chelsea after as many games.

"I do not write ourselves off," Wenger said in this morning's press conference. "That figure does not consider who we have played or how many games we have played away.

"I have a strong belief we will come back and we can just prove that on the pitch."

Tomorrow, the North London outfit will host Burnley at the Emirates.
