Arsenal will be there or thereabouts, insists Chris Kamara
Chris Kamara says Arsenal can't win the league but will still be up there
Chris Kamara expects Arsenal to be “there or thereabouts” at the end of the season.
The Gunners are facing their latest crisis after a throwing away a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 to Swansea City at Liberty Stadium on Sunday.
And Kamara feels Arsene Wenger is paying the price for failing to replace Belgium centre-half Thomas Vermaelen after the captain joined Barcelona in August.
“The gap is almost insurmountable. Arsenal have given away too many points and won’t be catching them,” Kamara told Sky Sports.
“He’s not hoping for complacency from Chelsea, he’s just being real. He’s as disappointed as anyone else about his team’s performances.
“They’re conceding goal after goal – they sold centre-back Thomas Vermaelen to Barcelona and didn’t replace him. That’s something he should have sorted out.
“It was the same problems against Swansea that they showed against Anderlecht. They’re bombing forward and not taking responsibility. But don’t get carried away, it’s a couple of games and they’ll still be there or thereabouts at the end of the season.”
