Piers Morgan predicts where Arsenal will finish in the top-four race

The outspoken Arsenal supporter doesn't expect Arsene Wenger's side to finish in the Premier League four

Piers Morgan is braced for Arsenal to finish outside the Premier League’s top four this season.

The Gunners suffered back-to-back Premier League defeats after 2-1 losses at Everton and Manchester City in their last two top-flight games before Christmas Day.

However, Arsenal made an unconvincing return to winning ways on Boxing Day thanks to a tepid 1-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion at the Emirates Stadium on Monday afternoon.

France international Olivier Giroud scored an 86th-minute to winner on his first Premier League start of the 2016-17 season to secure a vital three points in the title race.

However, Arsenal shareholder Morgan was feeling enthused after the Gunners’ slender win against the Baggies and the ITV presenter backed the north London side to finish in fifth or sixth place this term.

Arsenal finished in second place in the Premier League table last season but 10 points adrift of champions Leicester City.

The Gunners haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04 when Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira inspired Arsenal to top-flight glory.
