Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger responds to criticism from Paul Scholes

Arsene Wenger responds to Paul Scholes's comment that Arsenal are a "million miles" away from winning the Premier League title.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has responded to criticism from ex-Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes regarding the Gunners' Premier League title bid.

The retired player claimed that the Gunners were a "million miles away" from winning the title this season.

Scholes aired his views after the North London outfit dropped points in a 2-2 draw with Swansea City on Tuesday night.

Wenger said in Friday's press conference: "If six points is a million miles away... I don't know what the translation of a mile into a point is. People who have managed zero games have opinions and we have to accept that."

Arsenal will take on Manchester City on home soil on Saturday.
