Arsene Wenger expects tight title race ahead of Manchester City clash


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says this season's title race could go down to the wire.

The Gunners are second in the table on 33 points, two from leaders Leicester City and with a one-point advantage over next Monday's opposition Manchester City.

And according to the Frenchman, whoever is to win the title has to score at least 80 points.

"It [the title race] looks to be very tight," Wenger said on Thursday.

"We have played 16 games and the top team is on 35 points, so it means that the Premier League could be decided at around 80 points.

"If you look at the results it looks as though the consistency will be the main priority in this league because every week you are surprised by the results.

"We have really established a good run so for us it's important to continue that.

"It is a massive game [on Monday]. When we play at home you want to win because we are ambitious and we feel we have the chance to come out in a strong position after Christmas.

"It will be a very tight game because if you look at the numbers since the start of the season, offensively and defensively the numbers are very close. Manchester City has huge individual potential with David Silva and Sergio Aguero coming back and so we will need a top, top-level team performance."
