Wenger's men next take on Championship side Hull in an FA Cup fifth round replay today, after the holders were held to a goalless draw in the initial match at the Emirates.

Wenger though is adamant that the league title race is far from over, having inflicted two of only three defeats on Leicester this season.

"You don't think like that," he said when asked whether the FA Cup is Arsenal's most realistic chance of silverware.

"The Premier League is far from being over. Just to remind you, we have beaten Leicester twice so we have done our job against them. People have to look at other teams more, not just us on that front. We will not give up the Premier League, we will fight until the end."
