United 'look untouchable '

LONDON, February 18 – Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said Tuesday the current Manchester United team "look untouchable".

ARSENE_WENGERReigning English, European and world champions United are currently two points clear of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League, with a game in hand, and are 12 clear of longstanding rivals Arsenal.

Wenger, whose Gunners side went unbeaten in the league in 2003/04, has not given up on the title just yet but conceded United were some way in front of the rest.

The Frenchman saw Croatia striker Eduardo make his return to action after a year out with two goals in Arsenal’s 4-0 FA Cup fourth-round replay win over Cardiff on Monday but the Gunners’ manager was not getting carried away.

"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," Wenger said.

"They are 12 points ahead of us and they have a game against Fulham (on Wednesday) which they will certainly win. If they win that they are 15 points in front and that means they need to lose five games.

"Let us say they lose one against us, that still leaves four. They still need to lose four other games, which they haven’t done yet this season.

"But our basic target is to get into the Champions League and therefore the championship remains a priority."
