Wenger: Too early to compare Chelsea to Arsenal Invincibles

The Gunners boss has warned against underestimating his side in the Premier League title race.

Arsenal's manager Arsene Wenger has played down the hype currently surrounding Chelsea.
Arsenal's manager Arsene Wenger has played down the hype currently surrounding Chelsea.

ARSENE WENGER BELIEVES it is too early to say whether Chelsea can match the Arsenal Invincibles side of the 2003-04 season.

Arsenal already find themselves nine points adrift of Jose Mourinho’s side, who are yet to suffer defeat and have been tipped to match the team who went unbeaten throughout a whole Premier League campaign under Wenger a decade ago.

The Frenchman, though, believes such comparisons are premature and also feels his current team should not be written off in the title race.

“It’s too early [to say Chelsea can emulate the "Invincibles"],” he said at a press conference.

“[Our title odds] do not consider the teams we have played. I have a strong belief we will come back.

“We want to be good enough to get around teams who try and stop us from playing. Our attitude and dedication has been fantastic. On the efficiency front we could do better.”
