Arsene Wenger has questioned the Premier League schedulers after all but one of his side’s remaining games will be played on a Sunday.
The Gunners will play seven of their last eight matches on a Sunday whereas title rivals Manchester United only have three games on the Sabbath. It means Arsenal will struggle to exert much pressure ahead of United’s games.
Wenger told ESPN: “There are a lot of things going on which I don’t want to talk about.
“I have been here for 15 years, I know how things work. I want to be completely neutral, like I have to be. I am not involved in any decision. I do not do the schedule.”
Following Saturday’s disappointing goalless draw with Blackburn, the Gunners sit seven points behind the league leaders with one game in hand.
And, despite acknowledging that drawing each of their last three Premier League fixtures has not helped his side’s title chances, Wenger said:
“I look when do we play? It is on Sunday until the end of the season, but I do not want to speak about anything else like we look for an excuse about our performance.
“We have not been good enough, which is the main information of the Blackburn game, and we have to worry about being better in our next game. I have no influence on the fixtures, the referees, not on anything else here.”
