The Gunners legend Martin Keown is currently working as a pundit on television and gives out reams of opinion on his old club on a regular basis. His latest offering in the Mail has revealed that he believes that Liverpool’s recent great run will see them overtake both Arsenal and Man United, who will be left fighting it out for Fourth Place.
He said in a Q&A session: “I think Arsenal would happy to finish where they are now. Liverpool’s form is creating fear among the top four. Even City will be looking over their shoulder thinking they need to improve after losing to Brendan Rodgers’ side. So, there won’t be any time for Arsenal or Man United to relax.
“If Liverpool continue as they are, then realistically it could be Arsenal or United who miss out on the top four. That’s why I think the Gunners would be happy to stay as they are at the moment.
“I feel Liverpool’s form and momentum is so impressive, and with big players to come back from injury, they will make it into the top four. A lot rests on their next three games (Swansea, Manchester United, Arsenal).
“I think it will be between Arsenal and United in the end, but the fact they all have to play each other is fascinating.”
Liverpool are currently only three points behind Arsenal in the table, with United just one point behind the Gunners, so every game between those three teams could have a massive effect on our final placing at the end of the season. But surely Keown of all people can’t seriously believe that we can’t win the Wenger Trophy at least?
