Wenger denies employing mind games with Lacazette

Wenger: I Won't Give Up On EPL Tittle Hopes Like Pochettino

Arsenal slipped 15 points behind leaders Manchester City after Saturday's 3-1 home loss to Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium but manager Arsene Wenger is insistent that his team are still in the race for the Premier League title.

Wenger had claimed Lacazette suffered a groin injury during their 5-0 win over Huddersfield and would not be available for the United game.

"I am not Pochettino, I am Arsene Wenger", said the Frenchman.

'In the end he could play. "What did you want me to do?"

The weekend's woes were completed when the league leaders Man City scored a very late victor after it looked like they may be held by West Ham and that goal gives them a huge gap of 15 points over Arsenal.

The Frenchman, speaking at his news conference ahead of the Gunners Europa League clash against BATE Borisov, responded to United manager Jose Mourinho's very sly swipe at him.

"I'm always honest. I thought really that he wouldn't play, that's what I had been told".

"I'm telling the truth", Mourinho said when listing the availability of some of his players.
