Wenger: Arsenal players face deep regret if they blow title race now


Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger feels this season is their best shot in years to win the Premier League title.

Should Manchester City topple Arsenal on their own patch this Wednesday night, Pep Guardiola's side would leapfrog the Gunners into top-spot, though manager Mikel Arteta's men would have still played a game less.

Wenger has confessed he feels his beloved old side could be left with regrets if they do fall short and fail to lift a first league title in 19 years come the end of this season as rivals could come back stronger next term.

"You win it when you can win it and you don't care too much about the rest; you take the title and let the rest talk about it," the Frenchman told beIN Sport.

"I agree the conditions next season won't be as favourable as they are now so lets not miss this opportunity. Arsenal has 51 points after 21 games which is remarkable.

"I feel the usual threats are all out of the race. The only threat is City and even City is no not as dominant as they were last year or two years before, and I feel since the start of the season City was more vulnerable defensively than before."
