Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: 'Nobody will touch' Chelsea
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger doubted that any club was currently capable of catching Chelsea, saying that the club appears unbeatable so far this season, the BBC reported this morning.
Chelsea defeated Liverpool 2-1 after trailing during the first half on Saturday. The goals marked the twelfth consecutive match in which the club has scored and extended the Blues' league unbeaten streak this season.
Diego Costa sealed the victory for the Blues with his 10th goal in nine league appearances this year.
"If they keep that up nobody will touch them," Wenger said. "It doesn't look like anybody is capable of challenging them at the moment."
Chelsea has won nine of its eleven matches this season, while earning 1-1 draws at both Manchester City and Manchester United. The club currently holds 29 points, four more than second-place Southampton.
Wengers' club sits in sixth place, with 17 points on the season.
"Look at the season and Chelsea are on course for 105 points. Look at the number of points they have today and if they keep that up nobody will touch them, that's for sure," Wenger added.
"They have a good start and as long as you don't lose you don't question yourself."
Wenger's squad lost 2-1 on Sunday, giving up a lead at Swansea. The defeat moved the team 12 points behind Jose Mourinho's undefeated Chelsea club.
According to the BBC, this season Arsenal has given up more points from a winning position than any other team in the Premier League.
Chelsea and Arsenal both hold their next Premier League matches on Nov. 22. Chelsea will host West Bromwich (13 points, 13th in the Barclays Premier League), while Arsenal will play Manchester United (16 points, 7th in the BPL).
