Arsenal might get top four at a stretch, claims former Chelsea midfielder
Pat Nevin says Arsenal haven't made progress over the summer
Arsenal have just enough quality going forward to sneak a top-four finish, according to Pat Nevin.
The Gunners are a point behind fourth-placed West Ham United after a 2-1 defeat by Swansea City at Liberty Stadium on Sunday night.
They spent all that money and it is so disappointing for Arsenal fans
Arsenal have been regulars in the Champions League, qualifying for Europe’s premier club competition for the last 17 seasons.
While Nevin doesn’t feel like Arsenal have made any progress over the summer, the Chelsea legend expects the Gunners to have just enough to finish in top four.
“Arsene has clearly made quite a few mistakes,” Nevin told Newstalk.
“Looking at the players he has got, he has got some quite phenomenal players going forward.
“They will do ok this season. They might even, at a stretch, get top four.
“They haven’t improved from last year at all. They spent all that money and it is so disappointing for Arsenal fans.”
Arsenal face top-four rivals Manchester United at Emirates Stadium after the international break on 22 November.
