Shaka Hislop has admitted that he is not sure how Arsenal are going to fare under new manager Unai Emery next season.

The Gunners have been getting to grips with life under their new boss after he was drafted in as Arsene Wenger’s permanent replacement back in May.

Emery has been tasked with restoring the Gunners to the top of English football as they look to try and establish themselves as one of the main contenders for the title next season.

Arsenal will at the very least be looking to try and break back into the top four next season after they finished in sixth place and missed out on Champions League qualification for the second season running last term.

However, former goalkeeper Hislop has admitted that the north London side are something of a dark horse as the new Premier League season draws closer.

Speaking to ESPN FC, Hislop said: “Arsenal remain an uncertain entity. We are not sure what Unai Emery and the new Arsenal players are going to do.”

Arsenal have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph under Wenger back in 2004.

The north London side have ended up outside the top four in the last two seasons, leaving them facing Europa League football next term once again.
