Wenger reveals why Arsenal may not win title
Legendary Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has cautioned the team that their participation in the Champions League this season might hinder their quest for the Premier League championship.
Last season, Mikel Arteta's team came in second place, trailing only Manchester City, the eventual champions.
The Gunners have played four games so far this season, and they already have 10 points.
Wenger, however, thinks that their title chances could be harmed by balancing Champions League football.
“They still have a young, talented team. I think they learned from what happened to them last year. They couldn’t cope well with that mentally; it was very difficult. I’m sure they would’ve learned from that.
“I believe as well that City, having lost De Bruyne for a long period and Gundogan, who was a very important player, even if they are a top team, I don’t disagree with that, but maybe they can take advantage of it.
“But we have to deal with the Champions League, so that costs points as well,” Wenger said on the Seaman Says podcast.
