Danny Mills believes that Arsenal will struggle to get into the top six in the Premier League this season.

The north London side will be hoping to improve their form in the English top flight after they finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term and missed out on Champions League qualification.

Arsenal have brought in two players so far in the summer transfer window after the Gunners completed deals to land Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac.

Gunners fans will be hoping to see their side mount a serious Premier League title challenge this season, with the north Londoners having not won the trophy since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.

However, former defender Mills believes that Arsenal still struggle to get into the top four, let along challenge for the Premier League title.

Speaking on Sky Sports News on Tuesday morning, Mills said: “Arsenal, as it stands even with Alexis Sanchez unhappy, I think will struggle to make the top five, top six [this season].”

Arsenal did end last season on a high by beating Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

The Gunners also tasted further success over the Blues last weekend when they beat Antonio Conte’s men to win the Community Shield at Wembley after a penalty shootout victory.
