‘It’s not over!’ – Arsenal will not give up on Premier League title, says Wenger


first_imgArsene Wenger insists Arsenal have not given up their hunt for the Premier League title and ‘will fight to the end’ to get their hands on the coveted trophy.Since being tipped as favourites for the crown after a victory over Manchester City before Christmas, Wenger’s side have seen their challenge slip away with a run of three wins in 12 games in all competitions.And, following Saturday’s draw with Tottenham in a thrilling north London derby, the Gunners are now eight points adrift of leaders Leicester City with nine games remaining.But Wenger believes his side are still challenging both Spurs and the Foxes for the title and feels their two wins over the table toppers this season shows they have enough in their squad to close the gap.Arsenal face Hull City in an FA Cup fifth-round replay on Tuesday night, but – with the Gunners also on the brink of a Champions League exit at the hands of Barcelona – Wenger has refused to pin all of his trophy aspirations on the competition.“You don’t think like that,” he said when asked whether the FA Cup is now 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.”A sixth-round clash at home to Watford awaits the winner of Tuesday’s replay, with Arsenal’s Premier League game against West Brom to be rescheduled if they advance.Wenger is an advocate of the FA Cup and has seen his side win it in the last two years, but he is still likely to make changes against Steve Bruce’s Hull as his side face four games in the next ten days.“Look, we had no choice because the next round in the FA Cup is next Saturday,” he said of the replay being arranged for Tuesday.“So we had to fit it in somewhere. Ideally it’s not the best position for us but I couldn’t see any other solution.“I will have to [make changes] but I’m not so much concerned about replacing one player with another one. It’s more that I have to rotate a little bit and keep the right balance in the team.” 1last_img read more


Anger as residents left without supply yet again following water burst


first_imgHundreds of householders and business owners in and around east Donegal today (Sun) are without water again following a burst pipe between Ballindrait and Tober. It is understood that Irish Water are currently at the scene addressing the issue.It is expected that the normal supply will return around 4pm on Sunday. Cllr Gerry Crawford told Donegal Daily: “The water from Ballindrait to Tober has burst and is off again this morning.“This is the norm here burst to fix, burst to fix, which results in no water supply to the community in these areas, who rightly feel that their right to a water supply is being completely ignored.“Irish Water has been informed and will repair but the necessity is clear. (They have to) replace the water pipe (and) treat this community with respect.”Anger as residents left without supply yet again following water burst was last modified: September 22nd, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
