Harry Redknapp says Arsenal are in for a tough game when they travel to Everton in the Premier League on Saturday lunchtime.

The Gunners head into the game looking to bounce back to winning ways after the disappointment of their Champions League exit at the hands of Barcelona on Wednesday night.

The 3-1 loss at Camp Nou followed their FA Cup elimination at the hands of Watford last Sunday, to leave Arsene Wenger’s men with only the Premier League to play for.

Arsenal are currently 11 points behind leaders Leicester, although the Gunners do have a game in hand on Claudio Ranieri’s men.

Former Tottenham boss Redknapp says that Arsenal will be out of the title race if they lose to the Toffees on Saturday, and admits that the Gunners’ hopes of winning the top-flight crown are already looking very slim.

Writing in his column for the London Evening Standard, Redknapp said: “Tottenham are bang in form and ahead of them as well. I can’t see Arsenal winning it and if they lose to Everton on Saturday, they are out of the title race, for sure.

“That’ll be a tough game at Goodison Park with Romelu Lukaku on fire at the moment.

“Should Arsenal lose, Wenger will get it in the neck again from supporters. Abuse from the fans is never nice to take, especially when you aren’t used to it.

“He’s never really had to deal with that over a sustained period before — the odd pocket here and there maybe — but he was always considered a hero there. He doesn’t deserve the grief but whether he looks at it and thinks ‘I don’t need this grief any more’ or whether he will battle on, nobody knows.”
