Matt Le Tissier is backing Arsenal and Liverpool FC to miss out on a top-four place this season.

The Gunners have managed to reverse their slump following a 3-1 loss to Premier League leaders Manchester City at the end of October.

Arsenal produced a brilliant performance to secure a 2-0 win against title rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby earlier this month.

Alexis Sanchez scored an added-time winner from the penalty spot to wrap up a 1-0 win against Burnley at Turf Moor last weekend.

Liverpool FC are unbeaten in their last four Premier League games to close ground on Tottenham and Manchester United in the top-four race.

The Reds conceded 18 times in 13 games ahead of their trip to Stoke City in the Premier League last weekend.

Former Southampton captain Le Tissier doesn’t believe Arsenal and Liverpool FC have the necessary quality to secure a top-four spot.

“Arsenal are not suddenly convincing me with a 92nd-minute 1-0 victory over Burnley and Liverpool also miss out for me because their defence and goalkeeper are well behind the level of the other five,” Le Tissier told Sky Sports.

Liverpool FC are looking to secure back-to-back top-four finishes after seeing off competition from Arsenal last season.

The Gunners were 2-1 winners against defending Premier League champions Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley back in May.

Arsenal have won the competition three times in the past four seasons under Arsene Wenger.
