Arsene Wenger on the title race, transfers and Theo Walcott


Manager Arsene Wenger says it's too early to say if Arsenal can win the title this season.

With Chelsea and Manchester City sharing the points on Saturday, the Gunners closed the gap from the Blues to eleven points but the Frenchman insists that the focus is just on being consistent.

"It's too early to say [that Arsenal can still have a say]," Wenger explained.

"We are 11 points behind - that means they need to lose four games and we need to win four. I believe that we should try to be consistent and see what happens.

"I told you, you asked me my predictions [for the Chelsea v Manchester City game]. I said a draw and I was not wrong because Chelsea had one shot on target and Manchester City three or four. It was a draw."

Just like Mesut Ozil, winger Theo Walcott continued his superb return from injury and the Frenchman says the best is yet to come from the 25-year-old.

"I still feel he can score a goal in every game," Wenger said.

"In his overall game I still think he needs some more sharpness and more contact. He's a very intelligent player and the quality of Theo's game is about the quality of his movement, the quality of his receptions, where he gets the ball.

"He knows where to be dangerous and when he's in front of goal he can score."

Meanwhile, the 65-year-old predicts no players will be signed on the last day of the winter transfer window.

"I don't think I will be busy," he said.

"We have done what we wanted and unless there is a huge surprise and somebody calls me - not the journalists, an agent - then why not? At the moment, nothing, it's very quiet."
