Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas refuses to write-off Arsenal as a title contender.

He expects Arsenal to still challenge for the title even though Cesc Fabregas has left and Samir Nasri is set to go before the end of the month.

Asked if Arsenal will be a threat, he said: "I think so. In the end, Arsenal have made the changes they've made throughout the years but still threaten for the title in every sense.

"If that's the case with those two players and Arsene is happy to let them go or hold them - I'm not into that situation enough - it's up to them. I just have to focus on my squad."
