The Gunners closed the gap on leaders Leicester to eight points with the victory at the Emirates - and Wenger is refusing to concede defeat

Arsene Wenger watched his Arsenal team breeze past their FA Cup conquerors Watford 4-0 on Saturday - and claimed their title challenge is back on track.

The Gunners , who were forced to relinquish their two-year stranglehold on the cup after defeat to the Hornets last month , eased past the visitors thanks to goals from Alexis Sanchez, Hector Bellerin, Alex Iwobi and Theo Walcott.

The victory at the Emirates closed the gap on leaders Leicester to eight points and after watching his side's dominant display, the Frenchman was in no mood to concede defeat to the Foxes or local rivals Tottenham.

Speaking after the game, Wenger said: "We want to keep our quality very high. We will fight until the end to give ourselves the best chance [of the title].

"The title is never there for the taking, you have to work for it. Everyone is working very hard for it. It's never easy

"We played well with a good flow in our game. We had the same domination in the FA Cup but couldn't score."

Wenger also reserved a word of praise for 19-year-old Iwobi, who netted his second Premier league goal against Quique Sanchez Flores' side.

"He has been here since he was seven or eight," Wenger added. "He's fearless and very mobile."

German right-back Bellerin echoed his manager's sentiments and said that Arsenal were not prepared to give up the hunt just yet.

"We will never give up on the title chase until the end of the competition," said Bellerin. "It was good to come back with a win after the international break. The team needed a good performance."
