Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has joined Louis van Gaal in considering Leicester as genuine Barclays Premier League title contenders.

The Foxes sit at the top of the table after a superb start to the season under Claudio Ranieri - with Jamie Vardy leading the drive as the division's top goalscorer.

"Of course, you cannot rule them out," the Frenchman replied when asked if Leicester could win the title.

"Mathematically, you cannot rule Chelsea out. Even the bottom teams are in it. It is so difficult. It is so tight and I don't even look at the league anymore because it is very, very tight.

"Last week as you said, we had a bad result against West Brom and so did Manchester City (against Liverpool) so it compacted the whole table."
