The super-computer is claimed to have been fed the latest results and statistics, and decided that Arsenal will not be finishing in the Champions League places.
The Gunners have just fallen out of the top four thanks to Tottenham’s win over Chelsea last night, although that wouldn’t have been possible had we not succumbed to a 3-3 draw with Bournemouth on Monday.
Regardless of this result, we have looked very impressive this season, and with two very strong options able to lead the attack currently, as well as Danny Welbeck, Mesut Ozil, Lucas Perez, Alex Iwobi and Theo Walcott all vying for positions in behind them, it seems a crazy thought to think we are not going to remain strong throughout the campaign.
Our opinion is obviously not going to change the supposedly computer’s results, which are as follows:
3 Manchester City
4 Manchester United
9 West Brom
11 Stoke City
12 West Ham
13 Leicester City
17 Crystal Palace
I can’t for the life of me figure out how Manchester United are in there above us and Tottenham considering their dire goal difference (which for me tells its own story), while I expect Chelsea and Liverpool remain in their spots because they have no Europe to contend with.
There is no chance that we are giving up on our title challenge as of yet, never mind considering the thought of finishing outside the top four. We haven’t failed to qualify for the knockout rounds of the Champions League in well over a decade, let alone failing to qualify for the competition at all.
What could it be about our side that has convinced the computer to consider us for sixth place? Is there really a chance we could finish that low down?
