Arsenal manager Arsenal Wenger does not think Chelsea are relegation candidates this season amid bad season.
Chelsea are having a difficult campaign with just four wins, nine lost and three draws out of 16 games played this term and their 15 points accumulated so far puts them 16th in the League table just a point above the relegation zone.
And the Gunners manager Arsene Wenger said Chelsea are not relegation candidates despite having difficult times.
“If you ask me objectively, will Chelsea be in a fight not to go down, I say no chance.
”They are going through a difficult spell but they are not in a relegation battle,” the Frenchman said when asked in today’s Press Conference ahead of Monday game against Man City.
When asked whether he thinks Jose Mourinho will remain as Chelsea manager, Arsene Wenger had this to say: “Look, I do not want to assess any other things over Chelsea, it is not my problem.
”My problem is the game on Monday night.”
Chelsea have three more games before the end of this year and their opponents in line are Sunderland, Watford and Man United respectively and the team must be careful not to drop any more points to stop them from falling further deep into the relegation zone.
Arsene Wenger is aware of his upcoming opponent’s threat and dangers Man City can pose to them on Monday and he insist his side must show a tough charisma in the game.
”You look at their [Man City] individual quality and they are in it the title race. We will need a top, top performance against them on Monday.”
Arsenal will be playing Man City on Monday, a showdown which is highly expected to bring changes between these two sides position in the League table as Arsenal are just a point above Man City.
