Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that the 11 point gap between the Gunners and Chelsea is a “big concern” for him, as reported by the Daily Star.
The north London side could only manage a 2-2 draw against Hull City at home on Saturday, causing them to fall even further behind Jose Mourinho’s side.
Mourinho’s Blues have been exceptional since the start of the season, and continued their good run with another victory on Saturday, beating Crystal Palace away from home.
Arsenal are now sat in seventh place in the Premier League after eight games, and Wenger believes that improvements have to be forthcoming if his side want to challenge for the title.
“I cannot say it’s not a big concern.”
Hull led the game going into the last minutes of the clash, and could have come away from north London with a 2-1 win and all three points.
The Emirates Stadium side were only saved by a late strike from Danny Welbeck, with the £16 million signing continuing his recent goalscoring form.
