After Unai Emery’s two opening defeats as Arsenal manager, many pundits and even our own fans were writing off our chances of finishing in the Top Four this season, with most predicting a sixth place spot at best. But right now, after six straight League wins including a master class against Fulham last week, we have moved up to 4th spot ahead of Tottenham on goal difference.
We are only two points behind the Top trio of Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea, and are already five points clear of the imploding Man United side, so we are right back in the mix and if we can keep our winning run going we could even be challenging for the title. One man who thinks we are certain of Champions League football next season is the Gunners legend Robert Pires, who said: “For the moment I am very happy of course for the club because I am an ambassador for Arsenal but especially for Unai Emery because he’s a great manager,“
“He done well with Sevilla, he won some titles, especially with Paris Saint-Germain last season.
“And of course you know you need to improve every day but Arsenal actually are on a very good run, especially in the Premier League.
“Nine games, nine victories so I think they will finish in the top four, sure, 100 per cent.”
We are certainly looking good right now, but until we come up again one of the other Top Five teams, can we be certain that we will definitely make the Top Four? I think we can, if we keep on improving and keep everyone fit, I really believe we can win the title.
