Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is adamant that his side will not stop fighting for the Premier League title after they cut the gap on league leaders Leicester City.

The Gunners, 5.50 to win the league, are now eight points behind the Foxes after a comfortable 4-0 victory over Watford on Saturday.

Goals from Alexis Sanchez, Alex Iwobi, Hector Bellerin and Theo Walcott helped Arsenal record a routine win at the Emirates Stadium, just weeks after the Hornets knocked them out of the FA Cup at the same venue.

Although Arsenal cut the gap at the top, Leicester can extend it once more when they play Southampton on Sunday at the King Power Stadium.

Despite the deficit, Wenger insists his team will not give in until its mathematically impossible to catch Claudio Ranieri’s men.

He said: “We want to focus on the way we play and keep the quality very high. Then we’ll see where we are. We will fight until the end to have a chance.

“The only way we can achieve that is by playing games with our team quality. That is based on our movement, on our technical ability to play at the highest level and at the highest pace.

“Let’s focus on the next game. We know what is needed and what is needed is to keep the quality very high. Next week we go to West Ham.

It’s always a difficult place to go, so let’s prepare for that.”
