Wenger: Manchester United are 'untouchable'

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has described Premier League leaders Manchester United as 'untouchable'. Sir Alex Ferguson's team are two points ahead of Liverpool with a game in hand at the top of the table and look set to secure their third successive league title.

Worryingly for Wenger his Arsenal side are currently twelve points off the pace. "We are on a very strong run at the moment and we have promised to give everything until the last day of the season but at the moment Manchester United look untouchable," the Frenchman told reporters.

"They are 12 points ahead of us and they have a game against Fulham which they will certainly win. If they win that they are 15 points in front and that means they need to lose five games." Wenger continued. "But our basic target is to get into the Champions League and therefore the championship remains a priority."

With Croatia international Eduardo returning to first team duty last night and the arrival of record signing Andrei Arshavin, Wenger will be hoping that his squad has enough quality to secure a top four finish.
