Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has responded to ex-Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes’ comments that the Gunners are “million miles” away from winning the Premier League title.

The Gunners trail leaders Chelsea by six points in fourth place and faces a trip to third-placed Manchester City on Saturday.

Speaking during his pre-game news conference on Saturday, the French boss said: “People who have managed zero games have opinions. We have accepted that.

“If six points is a ‘million miles away’, I don’t know what the translation of a mile into a point is.”

Wenger also dismissed Scholes’ opinion that Gunners midfielder Jack Wislhere has “not improved since he was 17”.

“Jack has been handicapped by many injuries, but once he is back and playing consistently he will show everybody that (Scholes) is wrong about that.” Wenger stressed.

“He is an exceptional player- and Scholes knows that”.

Ex-England international, Scholes, who now works as a TV pundit for Sky Sports, criticised Arsenal following Tuesday’s 2-2 home draw against Swansea.

The draw came in the wake of the 6-0 thrashing at Chelsea.

“I feel for Arsenal fans”, said Scholes. “They get a little hint of the title for a few weeks and go to Chelsea, to Liverpool, to City and they just do nothing.

“Fans expect Arsenal to go for the league and I know they are third for fourth but they are million miles away in my eyes.”

Meanwhile, Wenger remains positive that France right-back Bacary Sagna, 31, will sign a new contract with the Gunners. Sagna’s existing deal runs out in the summer and he has been linked with a move to Manchester City or Italian side Inter Milan.

“He has been offered a contract. He has not come back to us yet,” he added. “I’m confident he will stay. But we will accept his decision no matter what it is.”

Arsenal could move level on 66 points with Manchester City, who have played two games less, if they win at the Etihad Stadium.
