Arsene Wenger claims his Arsenal side are still in with a shout of winning the League.
"Of course at the moment we are far from Manchester City - 12 points - so today we have to get back to a shorter distance before we can say we will fight for the title," Wenger said.
"What is important for us is to first get back in a fighting position closer to the top."
The Arsenal boss added: "Who would write off the title after nine games? People who do that have nothing to do in this job if you don't believe that you have a chance.
