Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits that his side are "very far behind" the top of the Premier League table but ensures that the main priority is to win the title.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that his side will not give up on fighting for the Premier League title but the Frenchman has admitted that they are "very far behind".

The North London outfit, who lost 2-1 to Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday, currently sit sixth in the league table, nine points adrift of leaders United.

"We have to show [that we can compete for the title]," said Wenger. "At the moment, you cannot say that because we are far away. But that's what the target is until the end of the season.

"We've played many away games now in many difficult places. We've played at [Manchester] City, at [Manchester] United, at Liverpool [and] at Stoke. So we have many difficult away games. But we are very far behind now."

The Gunners will switch their attentions to the Champions League this week as they prepare to take on Schalke 04 tomorrow.
