ARSENE WENGER insisted the Stamford Bridge defeat was not fatal to his side’s ambitions.
Chelsea are now seven points ahead of the Gunners but Wenger, who declined to pan the Blues’s pragmatic approach, said: “There is a long way to go. They are in a strong position but they can drop points as well. I don’t want to judge Chelsea’s style. I know when you win you are always right.”
He added: “I just think we have made a demonstration that you can play well and lose the game. I think we were a bit unfortunate as well because the first goal was a foul on Song from Ramieres. After that we made a mistake that should not happen at the near post and Drogba took advantage of it. You could see that Chelsea finished with cramps because they had to run a lot.”
