Arsene Wenger: 'Injuries cost us the title'

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claims that injuries to key players have cost his side the Premier League title.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has claimed that injuries have cost his side the Premier League title.

The Gunners led the way for large parts of the season, but have since slipped to fourth following the absence of a number of key players including Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey.

Wenger told reporters: "I would not like to take anything away from Aaron Ramsey but we lost a number of other players in the same period and altogether I think that would harm the chances of many teams.

"We would love for the season to be longer. We were top of the league but lost too many players at the crucial point of the season."

Arsenal eased past Newcastle United 3-0 on Monday evening.
