The race to finish in the top for of the Premier League is set for an exciting end and Arsenal are sure to be involved in the race. The Gunners currently hold onto a top four spot, although a recent dip in form has seen their lead over Liverpool and Manchester United narrow. While Arsenal still remain in the driving seat as they have a top four spot, they can’t afford any more errors, otherwise one of the chasing pack could capitalise.
Arsenal have lost two out of their last three games and only won five of their last ten. That form is not good enough to remain in the top four and it must improve if they want to stay there. Manchester United look to be the biggest danger and Jose Mourinho’s men are unbeaten in their last ten games. They have also just lifted the League Cup, something which will no doubt boost confidence in the camp.
Ahead of Arsenal, Manchester City are just two points clear while Tottenham are three points clear so it wouldn’t be a huge shock to see Arsenal finish second, if they can get their form back on track.
One thing Arsenal do have in their favour is that they hold their own destiny. Arsenal play all of the other four clubs who are looking for a top four spot before the end of the season. Should Arsenal win all of those, or pick up two wins and two draws then they will more than likely have done enough to finish in the top four. However, that also works the opposite way and should Arsenal fail to win any of those games then that would leave the door open for either Liverpool or Manchester United to jump ahead of them in fourth.
Arsenal have a history of finding a way to make sure they finish in the top four and although they have struggled a bit recently, they are certainly good enough to remain in the top four. Arsene Wenger needs to get his club back on track quickly as they have important games coming up but as long as he does that, I have every confidence that Arsenal will finish in the top four.
The run in looks tough for Arsenal, but that also means they can control their own destiny without relying on other teams for help. They need to make sure they pick up points against their rivals, otherwise they could find themselves in trouble, but for me Arsenal are a strong team who will do enough to land a top four spot.
