Ray Parlour has warned Arsenal that they are huge outsiders to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season.

The Gunners kept their fading top-four hopes alive with a 2-1 win at Middlesbrough on Monday night to leave Arsene Wenger’s men in sixth place in the Premier League table.

Arsenal have been in stuttering form in recent weeks and have won only four of their last 10 Premier League games to leave their Champions League qualification hopes in serious doubt.

And former Arsenal star Parlour believes that the Gunners are set for an uphill struggle in their race to secure Champions League football for next season.

Speaking on the Alan Brazil Up Front podcast, Parlour said: “Arsenal are massive outsiders [to finish in the top four].

“They’ve still got some really tricky games. It’s going to be difficult for Arsenal.”
