Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has effectively thrown the towel in on the Premier League title by suggesting no team will catch leaders Chelsea.

The north Londoners blew their latest lead on Sunday in the top flight when crashing to a 2-1 defeat by Swansea City to fall 12 points behind Jose Mourinho's unbeaten side.

It follows the cub's collapse last week when they squandered a comfortable 3-0 cushion to draw 3-3 with Anderlecht in the Champions League.

"If they keep that up nobody will touch them," Wenger said. "It doesn't look like anybody is capable of challenging them at the moment."

Capital rivals Chelsea came from behind to beat Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday and have now won nine of their 11 games so far this season.

Wenger added: "Look at the season and Chelsea are on course for 105 points. Look at the number of points they have and if they keep that up nobody will touch them, that's for sure.

"They have had a good start and as long as you don't lose you don't question yourself," the Frenchman said. "Maybe a little bit more extra spirit in the team helps them when it gets tight."

In-form Chile striker Alexis Sanchez had put Arsenal ahead in South Wales before goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and substitute Bafetimbi Gomis sealed the points for Garry Monk's men on Sunday.

Wenger refused to point the finger at individuals but suggested his players had eased down and blown the win.

"It's disappointing to throw a game away like we did," the Frenchman said.

"We were 1-0 up and had to be tight defensively and wait for that second chance. But you have to credit Swansea who didn't give up.

"We eased off at 1-0 and let them back into the game."
