Wenger expects most open title race


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger expects this to be the most open title race in many years. After just 12 rounds of games, the bigger clubs have suffered setbacks.

Arsenal lost to newly promoted West Brom and Newcastle Untied at home, Man Utd had a string of draws away from home and one against West Brom at OT, Man City lost to Sunderland and Wolves while Blackpool won at Anfield. The Frenchman believes one of the main reasons for such upsets is that the bigger clubs are playing more as they are sometimes busy on European duty.

“The level has gone up and I think the physical resistance of the teams who are a bit less good technically has become stronger,” Wenger told Arsenal Online TV. “All the teams in the Premier League can remain disciplined for 90 minutes.”
“Therefore, you have a little bit less difference made in the second half than years before. I think it’s going to continue because many teams have no real European cups in the week so can prepare fully.
“The demands on the teams in Europe are very high and the level of the less prestigious teams in the Premier League has gone up, so I believe everybody will drop points. Everybody else looks to be fighting and even Chelsea look like they will drop points.”
