Wenger: United are 'untouchable'

Arsenal manager concedes that Ferguson's side are in a class of their own this term

Arsene Wenger says Arsenal's focus is Champions League qualification

Arsène Wenger has conceded for the first time that Arsenal have no hope of winning the Premier League this season, as he declared the current league leaders Manchester United, "untouchable".

Arsenal sit in fifth place, 12 points behind the reigning champions, a gap that will extend to 15 if United win their game in hand tonight against Fulham, a victory that would also take Sir Alex Ferguson's side five points clear of second-placed Liverpool. That is a match the Arsenal manager also believes, no doubt to the annoyance of his Fulham counterpart Roy Hodgson, "United will certainly win".

Should a 15-point gap open up on Arsenal after tonight's game at Old Trafford, Wenger feels it will be asking too much for his side to catch up and claim their first league title since 2004.

Three goals by Scholes, Berbatov and Rooney in United's win over Fulham last night means they have increased their lead at the top of the Premiership.
