Wenger says Arsenal's problems his fault not the players

The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has shouldered the blame for the way his team's English Premier League football title challenge has collapsed.

A 2-1 loss to Bolton has left Arsenal's hopes hanging by a thread as the London side trail leaders Manchester United by nine points with four games to go.

Wenger says if anybody is to blame it's him, as he picks the team.

He says the players have had a good attitude to this season and while their chances of winning the title are minimal they'll keep on fighting.

Arsenal have been leapfrogged by resurgent champions Chelsea and sit third on the table.
