There are still 10 games left to play and anything can still happen from now until the end of the season. But The Gunners will need to turn their fortunes around and find some form quickly if they want to secure a top four finish, that’s for sure.
While many Arsenal fans (including myself) still believe they can attain a Champions League qualification spot, former Gunner Paul Merson reckons Arsene Wenger’s side will be fighting for fourth place with Spurs, despite Chelsea currently occupying the spot.
However, Merson, who spent 12 years at Arsenal, believes the fight for fourth place could well be over if Spurs pick up all three points against a resurgent Liverpool side tomorrow afternoon at Anfield.
The former England international recently said:
‘The next two games are the biggest of the whole season – Tottenham have got a difficult game at Liverpool and Arsenal go to Swansea.’
‘If Tottenham win this weekend and go ten points clear, Arsenal are in major trouble.’
Unfortunately, I would have to agree with Merse on this one. If Spurs go ten points ahead of us, I can’t see our side recovering from it. Mentally, the lads will be under so much pressure to deliver and Swansea away (next Saturday) isn’t exactly a walk in the park.
Hopefully Liverpool do us a big favour tomorrow afternoon and we capitalise on it next weekend. I will be sick as a dog if Liverpool manage to pick up all three points tomorrow and we get a negative result at The Liberty Stadium!
Will the fight fourth be over if Spurs beat Liverpool?
