Ian Wright makes confident prediction about Arsenal

The Arsenal legend is confident that the Gunners will finish in the Premier League's top four this season

Ian Wright is confident Arsenal will finish in the Premier League’s top four this season.

The Gunners were 3-1 winners against Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon courtesy of goals from Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott.

Arsenal moved four points clear of north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur thanks to their 3-1 win, while sixth-placed Manchester United are already a staggering eight points adrift of Arsene Wenger’s side.

The Gunners have managed to finish in the Premier League’s top four in the past 20 seasons under Wenger but haven’t reached the Champions League quarter-finals since 2010.

Asked whether Arsenal would finish in the Premier League’s qualify places for Europe’s premier club competition this season, Wright told BBC Radio Five Live’s 606 show:

“They’re destined for top four, I know that.”

The Gunners played out stalemates with Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United before their 3-1 win against the Cherries in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
