Manchester United is untouchable, says WengerFebruary 18th, 2009 - 4:22 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb 18 (ANI): Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has accepted that it is not easy to catch up with Manchester United in the English premier league as they are way ahead.
But the boss insisted that qualifying for the Champions League is still more important than winning any other trophy this season.
Wenger has told his players to forget about FA Cup glory and make their priority catching the top flights top four, The Sun reported.
Arsenal is five points off fourth-placed Chelsea and 12 behind leaders United.
That gap will stretch to 15 points if United win their game in hand at home to Fulham tonight.
United look untouchable at the moment because they are already a long way ahead and have this game against Fulham, which they will certainly win. That means they will be 15 points ahead of us and, for us to catch them, we would need them to lose five games, Wenger said.
Lets say they lose one of those against Arsenal, wed still need them to lose another four and they havent done that so far this season.
Our basic target is always to get into the Champions League. Therefore, the Championship remains this clubs priority, he added. (ANI)
