Arsene Wenger predicts where Arsenal will finish this season
Arsene Wenger still feels that Arsenal have a good chance of finishing in the Premier League's top four this season
Arsene Wenger believes that Arsenal still have a “good chance” of finishing in the top four this season.
The Gunners boss has found himself under relentless pressure in recent weeks following his team’s dramatic slump in form.
The north London side have lost four of their last five Premier League games to leave them facing an uphill battle in the race for Champions League qualification.
Arsenal were also dumped out of the Champions League following a humiliating 10-2 aggregate thrashing at the hands of Bayern Munich last month.
The Gunners are through to the FA Cup semi-finals but will have to navigate their way past Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the last four.
And the Citizens visit Emirates Stadium this weekend as Arsenal look to try and return to winning ways in the Premier League.
Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Wenger said: “It’s not been a good season. It’s not gone in the way we expected but it can still be an acceptable season.
“Do we respond well? We still have a good chance to finish in the top four and we are in the semi-final of the FA Cup.
“It’s never good enough if you do not win every single game in the season but we cannot go the way people want us to go.”
Arsenal finished second in the Premier League and without a trophy last season, after winning the FA Cup in both 2014 and 2015.
