Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal can still win the Premier League title despite back-to-back defeats.
The Gunners are now 11 points adrift of Chelsea with a game in hand following Sunday’s 3-0 defeat to Carlo Ancelotti’s men.
Although Arsenal have now suffered four league defeats before the start of December, Wenger is refusing to concede the title.
“I do not think it is over,” said Wenger. “We are fighters and we have to show that in the next game.
“The problem we have to face at the moment is people will not believe in us, so we have to make sure that lack of belief does not diminish our own belief.
“That is where we have to be mentally stronger than we were.
“Because until now, we had some credit which we earned at the start of the season from the specialists, then we a lose a game, so now it will be harder.”
Wenger added: “We are still in a very strong position. Chelsea can drop points, I am convinced of that.”
