Paul Merson is convinced that Arsenal will finish in the top four this season.

The Gunners have been left with it all to do in the race for Champions League qualification after a dismal run of form in the Premier League in recent months.

The north London side are currently in fifth place in the Premier League table as they chase Champions League qualification.

Arsenal have never finished outside the top four during Arsene Wenger’s reign at the north London club but could very well miss out this term.

However, former Arsenal star Merson is still convinced that the Gunners have what it takes to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Speaking on Sky Sports News HQ, Merson simply said: “I think they’ll get in the top four, I really do.”

Arsenal take on Sunderland at The Emirates on Tuesday night as they look to keep their faint top-four hopes alive.
