​Wenger: Everyone wrote Arsenal off after Liverpool loss, but we're back

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger thinks his side is back in the title race after putting a decent run of results in the recent weeks.

The French manager says everyone wrote his side off after the defeat at Liverpool, but they have proved their critics wrong.

As things stand, the Gunners find themselves level on points with fourth-placed Chelsea and ahead of Liverpool in the league table.

Wenger said: "I knew that after the game at Liverpool everybody did write us off, I knew that it just depends on us, on how much we respond.

"Nothing is permanent, you are not bad in a permanent way if you can do something about it and you're not good in a permanent way if you don't keep your urgency, so we responded in a united way and we could put some wins together and some good performances as well."
