Arsene Wenger insists there is no chance he will let Arsenal’s players become distracted by talk of a late challenge for the Premier League title.

After a slow start to the campaign, Wenger’s side have hit their stride in recent weeks and they head to struggling Burnley on Saturday looking for an eighth successive league victory.

But despite second placed Arsenal’s superb run, which includes 15 wins in the last 17 matches in all competitions, Gunners boss Wenger knows the title race remains firmly in Chelsea’s control as the leaders hold a seven point advantage and also a game in hand on their London rivals.

“I have enough experience to know that I have to live with reality and reality is points and the next game,” he said.

“The dreams are for everybody — we all have dreams at night, but when I wake up in the morning I have to come here and make sure we give everything to win the next game.

“Chelsea have a difficult schedule, we have a difficult schedule, but what we can only do is master our own schedule.”
