Pundit insists Arsenal has a good chance of making the top four next season

Kevin Campbell insists only Manchester City and Liverpool are guaranteed a spot in the Premier League’s top four next season, which means Arsenal has a chance of making it.

Mikel Arteta’s team came close to sealing a return to the Champions League in the just-concluded campaign and fans expect that to be the next step.

However, the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham and West Ham will also be in the running and they are formidable opponents for the Gunners to face.

But Campbell believes only two spots are guaranteed, the other two could go to any club that works hard enough to earn it.

He tells Football Insider: “There is going to be a lot of teams vying for those places. Fourth spot is not a given for anybody.

“The two teams you can rely on are Man City and Liverpool. The rest will be competing. Nobody can tell me Spurs are guaranteed top four next season just because they have [Antonio] Conte. They will be in the fight like everyone else.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

We can truly finish next season inside the top four if we work hard enough to achieve that.

However, other clubs will feel the same way, so we need to get our summer recruitments right and train properly for the start of the season.

  1. We need new recruitment in some positions, I hope Arteta n EDU can pull up genius signing. We’re few player away from top four. FA cup or league cup with Europa cup to make 2022/23 season splendid

    1. I would only share you optimism if we get the additional signings we need this summer. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be that optimistic at all. We need at least six great signings (based on likely departing squad members) before we can even contemplate top six let alone top four. Our squad is too thin for the addition of European football. We will be playing Thursday’s and Sunday’s (Not including cup games). We need some excellent recruitment or next season is likely to see us finish back to eighth position!

  3. Can’t rule Newcastle out of that equation they will spend big this summer and Howe has done a great job.

    1. That’s right, Kev82. I’m sure Newcastle, West Ham, Leicester and even Aston Villa are going to strengthen well this summer. Manure will look to fix things too. The battle for top four will be the toughest it’s been for years. We will have to be exceptional and have much more depth than we have right now if we want to be in the mix!

      1. I don’t see us getting top 4 GR I think our best route back into the Champions league is by winning Europa League which will be extremely difficult especially with United in there. I’m not so much worried about Leicester but those others teams you mention will be a worry, I think Villa might be a surprise package they’ve already signed Coutinho and Kamara and we’re still in May.

  4. Another rebuild season.
    6 new players.
    Release /sell 9.
    Any where between 3rd and 9th in the league.
    EL quarter final.
    FA Cup/Carabao all depend on the draw.

  5. We need an injection of six to seven players in my opinion.

    From what am seing the gaffer seem to be very good getting the bunch playing effectively as a team.

    So with three midfielders, one top striker, and three robust defensive players to support the back line, could take us very close.

    But I want to emphasize here we should break the bank for a top top striker that will deliver the goods

  6. Arsenal didn’t have European football this year, meaning the priority was to qualify for CL this coming season. How on earth Kevin they are going to qualify when they will be part taking in the Europa league? With the players they want to keep though they failed at Arsenal is beyond me. You can see Elneny and Xhaka are not helping the youngsters but they are regarded as matured players. How on earth these youngsters are going to learn anything from these players? I say this again under Arteta we are useless but under Kroenke we doomed for life. Continue to support them as mid-table team.

    We will never compete with Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea including Spurs and Newcastle.
