"I will leave the mathematics of the title to you. We will now go away and focus on the next game.
"We never expected defeat. It was played at a high pace but we gave it everything and created chances. So I'm not disappointed with the way we played. It was our third away defeat in a row, and as against West Ham and Bolton we could have had the points. At the moment it doesn't go for us."
Thierry Henry saw a second half 'goal' ruled out for what replays showed was a very tight offside decision and Wenger was left to rue yet another tight call that had gone against his side.
"I must say the coincidences of the decisions against us at the moment are very peculiar, but we have to play with it. We cannot influence the referee."
