Arsene Wenger believes that his Arsenal side can still win the title. The Gunners are six points behind leaders Manchester United who needed a last minute winner from Dimitar Berbatov to go top. Arsenal showed their fighting qualities when they recorded a 3-1 victory over Hull and Wenger is adamant their hopes rest on their away form as they have still to face Manchester United and Chelsea on their travels. He said: "They [United] won 1-0 against Wigan and 1-0 in the last minute against Bolton so that indicates they will drop points.

"They have a massive squad but if they have injuries then they will have the same problem we do. "I believe nobody is flying above the rest and when Manchester United are having to win games in the last minute it gives hope for everyone." misaacs@thenational.ae
