Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted his side are now looking over their shoulders and not up at the top of the table following their 2-2 draw with Swansea City on Tuesday.

Once again the north Londoners’ season has unravelled in the space of a few weeks, with an exit from Champions League and their outside shot at winning the Premier League title slipping through their fingers.

At present the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool appear to have just too much quality and Arsenal’s draw with the Swans on Tuesday night highlighted the shortcomings of Wenger’s side.

Of course, injuries to the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott have by no means helped the Gunners’ cause but now the fear is they may even struggle to maintain their place in the top four.

Everton, after their 3-0 victory at St James’ Park over Newcastle, are certainly breathing down their necks and a clash with Man City for Arsenal, who are now out at 70.00 to win the Premier League, on Saturday is not ideal.

Wenger knows this and was very honest about his side prospects for the rest of the season.

He said: “Winning the title isn’t our biggest worry at the moment because we have to be realistic.

Man City look unstoppable and are favourites because they have two games in hand. We have not much room to come back into it.

“We have to look behind us; of course, we also have to look in front of us, but as well behind us.”
