Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is refusing to concede defeat in the Premier League title race even though his team are now 15 points adrift of Manchester City in top spot. Mauricio Pochettino has ruled Tottenham out of contention but Wenger is refusing to throw in the towel. The Gunners, who last won the trophy in 2003-04 and have three more points than rivals Spurs, are lagging in fifth spot after five defeats in their first 15 games. "I am not Pochettino, I am Arsene Wenger," the Frenchman said. "I am here to fight as long as I can. As long as mathematically it’s possible, you have to fight."
