Arsene Wenger has revealed his concern about a possible failure to finish within the top-four.
Arsenal could only manage to pick up six points from their last four matches, allowing Manchester United to close the gap to within five. The Red Devils have played a match less, and only one slip up from the North-London side could prove crucial.
Arsenal travel to Man City on May 8, so this weekend’s home tie against relegation-threatened Norwich City could not be any more important.
The Canaries have been demoted into the drop-zone on goal difference thanks to the Gunners failure to beat Sunderland on Sunday, and Norwich will be desperate to win, and with our team struggling at present, a result would not be a total shocker.
Wenger has now confirmed that he is in fact worried about the club’s situation, with what should be two tough matches coming up in order to try and secure Champions League football next term.
“Yes, of course. We care about that and we worry about it as well because it’s a fight,” Wenger said.
“There are two leagues at the moment – the teams who are taking it a little bit easier, you see some games and you think you would like to play them now, the teams who are safe and are not going for Europe, and then you have the teams who are going for something at the front and the teams who are fighting not to go down, and they are different games.
“It is frustrating because we play to win the title and the fact that we do not win it is of course frustrating, like it is for many other teams.”
I have heard some so-called fans to call for us to drop out of the top-four, in hope of putting pressure on Wenger’s job, but I’m a fan who only wants the best for my club, no matter who is in charge!
We need to four points from our next two matches really, with what should be an easy win against the already-relegated Aston Villa to end the season with.
Will me confirm our place in the top-four?
