Why Arsenal won’t finish in EPL top four – Ian Wright

Former Arsenal striker, Ian Wright, has given reasons why the club will not finish in the top four this season.

Ian Wright however advised Unai Emery to concentrate on trying to win the Europa League which would see them qualify for the Champions League next season.

The London side are currently sixth in the Premier League, one point behind Manchester United in fifth and three points behind Chelsea in fourth.

“Going back to the unbeaten run, I think that gave people false hope in respect to finishing fourth.

“It was a great run but during that run there were times in it where you thought, ‘Ooh, that was a bit tricky for us, could have done better here, could have done better there.’

“But the fact is that that kind of elevated everybody’s expectations a bit and I still feel top four is still out of our reach if I’m going to be totally honest.

“The Europa League is something that Arsenal should be really focusing on, for me.

“But I think that Europa League is what Arsenal should be focusing on. The manager’s got a bit of pedigree in it and I think we can get some guys back [from injury] and have a blast for that,” Wright said.
