Ray Parlour predicts where Arsenal will finish this season
The former Arsenal midfielder is confident that Arsene Wenger's side will finish in the Premier League's top four
Arsenal will definitely finish in the Premier League’s top four this season, according to Ray Parlour.
The Gunners dropped out of the Champions League places earlier this month after Arsene Wenger’s side played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.
Arsenal struggled to find consistency during the festive period after the north London side suffered defeats by Everton and Manchester City to end their impressive unbeaten run.
Wenger’s side finished in second place in the Premier League table last season after strong second half of the 2015-16 season.
Speaking to the Alan Brazil Up Front podcast, Parlour issued his backing for Arsenal to finish in the Premier League’s top four despite trailing Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City at the start of the weekend.
“I think they’ll definitely be in the top four. They’ve got enough quality. I don’t think you can bet on the top four. I can’t call it. It changes every week,” Parlour said.
Arsenal signed five players in the summer transfer window after Wenger’s men finished in second place and 10 points behind Leicester City last term.
The Gunners brought in Granit Xhaka in a £33m deal from Borussia Monchengladbach before Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi arrived from La Liga side Valencia.
