Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits it is unrealistic for the Gunners to talk about winning the title.

After losing at home to Manchester United last weekend Arsenal find themselves in fifth place, 15 points adrift of leaders Manchester City.

Wenger takes his side to Southampton tomorrow looking to bounce back from that loss and on the back of a 6-0 Europa League victory over BATE Borisov.

It is expected Arsenal's entire XI will once again rotate as players such as Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud make way for the likes of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette.

But Wenger (68) has conceded talk of a first title since 2004 is not on the agenda.

"At the moment we have different worries than the title," he said. "After such disappointment, you have to think about winning the next game.

"We are too far from the title at the moment to speak about the title. It's not realistic."
