The Arsenal legend Ray Parlour watched Arsenal only end up with yet another point on Saturday, and he is very sure that the best that the Gunners can hope for this season is the usual Wenger Cup for scraping into the Champions League, but he doesn’t even think that will be easy!
‘I think Arsenal are fighting for third or fourth place,’ Parlour was quoted as saying in the Mail. ‘You look at Manchester City and Chelsea and they’re in a different league compared to Arsenal.
‘They’re so far above Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs. I think all these teams are fighting for two places, they’re fighting for third and fourth.
‘Chelsea grind out results. They’re so clinical in the way they get results and Manchester City stand a great chance, particularly if (Sergio) Aguero can keep playing like that. He was fantastic (against Tottenham), absolutely different class.
‘Those two teams are far apart from Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Spurs, so that’s what Arsenal are left fighting for.’
Parlour is only telling us what we already knew in our hearts, but with Man United and Liverpool already above us and Spurs on level points then we still have a massive fight ahead of us. Personally I’m more qorried about Southampton than Spurs!
