The Gunners made a disappointing start to the new Premier League campaign last weekend after a 4-3 defeat by Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side at the Emirates Stadium last Sunday evening.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been criticised for failing to significantly strengthen his Gunners squad over the summer despite the north London side finishing in second place in the Premier League table back in May.
The French coach signed Switzerland midfielder Granit Xhaka in a £33m deal from Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach before Wenger added inexperienced Japanese forward Takuma Asano and Bolton Wanderers centre-half Rob Holding to his squad.
Former Liverpool defender Carragher reckons Arsenal might need to finish outside the top-four for the first time in 22 years in order for significant changes to take place at The Emirates.
“It might help Arsenal if they never get in the top four in terms of changing,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
Manchester United cemented their place at the top of the Premier League table thanks to Friday night’s 2-0 victory over Southampton.
Arsenal haven’t won the Premier League title since 2004.
